Title: Huseyn, after a work by Nazif Bey
Medium: Ink, hot tempera, gold on Ahar paper
Image size: 18.25 x 16.5”
Interpretation: They unjustly made Huseyn a martyr,
an army of arrogant unbelievers who did not fear God.
Do not think, O Safvet, that the moon was eclipsed in the month of Muharram.
No, a great curtain was lowered over the sky because of the great sigh of grief.
Ottoman poem by Safvet
