Mohammed riding with angels

Today's image of Mohammed shows him riding with angels. In some images his face is shown, in others it is concealed by a veil - this image combines the two art historical trends by showing his face and features as visible beneath the veil. The manuscript, created in India circa 1782, is in the British Library.
