Bowl with a Ruler and Attendants

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 453

Like many of the other mina'i ceramics, this example is concerned with courtly themes—here, the seated royal figure, holding a wine cup, is flanked by attendants and surrounded by courtiers. The peacocks at his feet underscore this theme.

Bowl with a Ruler and Attendants, Stonepaste; polychrome inglaze and overglaze painted and gilded on opaque monochrome glaze (mina'i)
