- Referred to as peri winged celestial creatures are among some of the most popular subjects in sixteenth-century Ottoman and Persian drawings and paintings. The exquisitely rendered composition typifies a distinct style of Ottoman drawing that combines sweeping, calligraphic lines with soft, feathery strokes, as is evident in the minute designs on the figure's robe, cup, and bottle. Light washes of color add a sense of volume and texture to the form of this heavenly being.
