Title not known (Al-Obaidi 1)


Composition in blue with three stylized horses


The main color palette of this composition is made up of various shades of blue with splashes of red patterning. Three stylized horses dominate the picture plane. The highly abstracted version of a human figure appears to be laid horizontally across the back of the foremost white horse indicated by an outstretched led and arm. While the foreground is plain, the background is made up of a series of arches possibly hinting at the presence of a city.
