DESCRIPTION

The design of this printed textile was probably copied from a patterned silk. The Arabic inscription ("the sultan") in the center of each rosette was an abbreviation of an official Mamluk formula. The Buddhist knots in the petals of the rosettes and between the stars as well as the Chinese lotus flowers in the petals of the rosettes are indictive of how strong Mongol influence was in Egypt during the Mamluk period.

INSCRIPTION

al-sultan (the sultan)
