Vintage Afghani Print
Religious Battle - Crusades

The original of this print was purchased in the early 1970s in Kabul by my husband.
The graphics on this and the other similar prints are gorgeous! This image shows a king slaying a knight as a horse pulls a woman battle. I am not exactly sure what specific story this depicts but based on the dress of the knight, it seems to be a battle during the Crusades in which a muslim king defeated the Christian knights. My research shows that Muslim woman did go into battle during the Crusades. Perhaps this is the king and his daughter or wife? (If anyone knows for certain or can read/understand Arabic, please write!)

These types of prints illustrate stories from the Koran and other religious tales, history or proverbs.. These were especially useful for a population which was largely illiterate. The originals were usually tacked to the walls of homes and shops as both decoration and a display of faith.

The artwork is quite beautiful and detailed; the colors vibrant.
