Hilye-i Serif by Kazasker Mustafa Izzed

hilye-i serif by kazasker mustafa izzedKazasker Mustafa Izzed (1801-1876) is another favorite Hilye-i Serif artist of mine. He lived during the reign of Sultan Abdulmecid. At the top, we see a miniature of Mecca and Madinah, rococo style. The circle in the middle describes Mohammad, and in the four corner spots around the circle, the names of four caliphs are written.

Dimensions: 58x39 cm.
Estimated value: $ 100,000
