Description

This painted inscription is in the style of the finely embroidered tiraz imported into Egypt from Iraq. While the letters appear identifiable, a complete reading of the inscription has yet to be done. Over the final letter (on the left) a small inscription appears, possibly the name of the calligrapher.
