Mohammed and Ali at Medina



Both Mohammed and Ali are veiled and have flame halos in this very traditional Ottoman image (ca. 1600) - they are visiting their own tombs at Medina. Their companions' faces are shown however, since they are still alive. The scene takes place at night.

British Library.
