Khurasan: 1000-Year-Old Islamic Dish


Islamic dish, originally uploaded by uBookworm.

The calligraphy reads: "Magnanimity is bitter-tasting at first, but sweeter than honey in the end. Good health [to the owner of the dish]." The central motif is based on the Chinese yin and yang pattern. -Paris Louvre
