I need help figuring out what exactly this is, It looks like very old art work done by hand that was in a book at one time or another, and it looks like it was written in Latin or some type of language. The pictures don't do the art work justice, it's absolutely beautiful! Thanks for any help!

    Obviously not scenes from our current "Crusades" & I see only one violent scene which leads me to think just everyday life basically. Can you get a translation? Very interesting.

    Very nice & well done, looks like some form of Arabic calligraphy. ( I'm just guessing)
    I've seen that style of clothing especially the hat but now I can't find it in Google searches.

    Try "Persian Hunting Scene Watercolour" on google images. Translation of the text will be necessary. Sorry not my forte!

    @ vetraio, I think I looked at a thousand images under various combinations of Persian, but didn't try your "Persian Hunting Scene Watercolour". Put that in Google & there is the style that I was trying to find. I should have saved myself some time & contacted you. :-))

    Just tried "Iranian hunting scene watercolour" and got a slightly different result!

    I knew this was going to be a tough nut to crack! Thanks everyone for your input!

    It's definitely Iranian. It's probably a page from an old book. It's very beautiful.
