In this work, Michael Barry uncovers the mysteries of the numerous visual symbols employed in medieval Islamic figurative painting, during its Golden Age between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. This study takes a bold approach to crack the allegorical code and the lost iconographic conventions of a civilization and to acknowledge the riddle of the religious enigma posed by the existence of figurative painting in Islam. Barry focuses his study around the work of Bihzâd, a painter who flourished in the late fifteenth century in the kingdom of Herât, now in Afghanistan. The scholarly text, lavish illustrations, and extracts from Persian poetry, many translated into English for the first time, combine to create an essential new work of reference and a visual delight.
