This panel, carved from a single piece of elephant ivory, once adorned one side of a rectangular casket. The complexity of the decoration as well as the attention to details, such as the eyes of humans and animals, which were drilled and filled with minute clear stones, demonstrate the refinement and the accomplishment of such an object.

The most important element in any mosque is the mihrab, the niche that indicates the direction of Mecca. Because it functions as the focal point in prayer ritual, its decoration was executed with great skill and devotion. This example from the Madrasa Imami in Isfahan, founded in A.H. 755/A.D. 1354, is composed of a mosaic of small glazed tiles fitted together to form various geometric and floral patterns and inscriptions. The inscriptional frieze in muhaqqaq script containing sura IX:14–22 from the Qur&apos;an runs from the bottom right to the bottom left; a second inscription, in kufic script, with sayings of the Prophet, borders the pointed arch of the niche; and a third inscription, in cursive, is set in a frame at the center of the niche. The bottom of the niche, just below the central inscription, and a substantial part of the beginning and end of the main inscription were restored by skillful potters in Isfahan in the mid-1920s. Outermost script details 5 pillars of the Islamic faith.

In the reign of Hushang, grandson of Gayumars, the world came to understand the usefulness of minerals and the art of smithery, as well as agriculture and irrigation. One day Hushang spied a horrible dragon lurking behind the rocks. He hurled a stone at it, which missed the monster but hit a larger rock causing sparks to fly up. Realizing the significance of this phenomenon, Hushang built a large fire and held a feast to celebrate its discovery. The witty yet profound characterizations of people and animals are characteristic of the liveliest of Sultan Muhammad&apos; s creations. No Persian artist has excelled in presenting a world so overflowing with life and so rich in exuberant detail as Sultan Muhammad, to whom this painting is attributed. Using color, he created a somewhat otherworldly atmosphere suitable to the remote, early phase of civilization depicted in this miniature celebrating the discovery of fire.
