Image Remarks: A painting depicting Sassanid king Bahram 5 showing off hunting skills by hitting a deer with an arrow that tied its foot to its ear, a poem by Nezami Ganjavi. Azadeh, Shah's maid who challenged the king is playing her harp in disbelief. Clues&Views:Minor mistakes are in the Persian poem in the painting, the correct version is: سم سوی گوش برد صید زبون تا ز گوش آرد آن علاقه برون تیر شه برق شد جهان افروخت گوش و سم را به یکدیگر بردوخت
