Hindu Couple United on the Funeral Pyre
English: In this folio from Walters manuscript W.649, the young Hindu girl has thrown herself on her beloved's funeral pyre. The historic Hindu practice of self-immolation or widow-burning, called sati, was an uncommon subject for Persian literature. The painting was part of a series created to illustrate a poem written by Naw'i Khabushani (d. 1019 AH/AD 1610) about a girl betrothed, but whose to-be-husband dies before the marriage. The painting was produced in Iran, by Muhammad 'Ali Mashhadi in 1068 AH/AD 1657. According to the colophon, Ibn Sayyid Murad al-Husayni copied the manuscript for the painter Muhammad 'Ali, the "Mani of the time," as a "souvenir." The fact that the manuscript was produced for one of the most prolific artists of 17th-century Iran makes it a highly significant document. Source and folio description from Walters Art Museum
