Ottoman Polo Match

miniature of ottoman polo match

Human imagination can go to extremes. I was not aware that polo was popular in Ottoman Empire! According to the artist of this miniature, however, it was.

The page the miniature is drawn on is rather old, roughly 150 years and being unable to find out the name of the book, I really can not say if the artist ruined an artifact with her miniature (miniature is recent, hence the price tag). It is cute, nonetheless.

Dimensions: 14x20 cm.
Estimated value: $ 25
