This manuscript is an anonymous copy of the famous story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife (Yūsuf va Zulaykhā) by Nūr al-Dīn Jāmī (d. 898 AH / 1492 CE), executed in the 10th century AH / 16th CE. It contains three illustrations.
In this scene, Joseph, identified by a flaming halo, walks into a room, wherein Egyptian women sit and peel fruits with a knife. According to legend, the women were so entranced by Joseph’s incomparable beauty that they inadvertently cut their hands.
Zulaykha is shown traveling to the house of her future husband, who was chosen for her by her father.
