Law Against Tyranny



The panel depicts the holy sanctuary of the mosque at Mecca. Within the compound, the Ka’ba is shown in the centre among other sites such as the minbar, the well Zamzam and the structures of the different religious schools, all identified by their names. Such topographical works, with a votive or commemorative function, are typical of the Iznik workshops of the 17th century and follow such illustrations in manuscripts from the 16th century onwards. This panel is a prime example of art integrated in muslim architecture.
