Allah’s name is painted in a roundel on the wall, signaling the Muslim family’s devotion.
In the foreground, three men brawl. Each was promised the hand of a religious man’s daughter, and each believed himself to be the worthiest suitor. The daughter, sitting in the chamber with her mother, is so upset by the conflict that she falls ill and appears to die. Her father, the devotee, sits in the background alongside his son.
