Safavid Tile with Animals
This tile depicts part of a hunting scene where two animals are shown galloping mid-stride. The yellow-glazed animal is perhaps a gazelle, and has been struck by an arrow. Running alongside is a beast with black blotchy spots, looking rather fierce with fangs and a brightly painted red tongue.
