This Persian carpet is a rare example of a figurative and narrative carpet design. The central figure Khusrau is riding a horse while Shirin can be seen on the terrace. The rider travels past palaces, hillocks, a pond full of fish towards another mountain where wild animals roam. Three borders around the principle border depict Shikargarh scenes. The border is decorated with strange and wonderful creatures of almost mythical character and nature.
