A Mamluk sketch of a combat, first half of the 14th century.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, inv. 1975.369.

The 'folk' art of the Mamluk Sultanate was far simpler than that of the court, though often equally warlike. This gruesome sketch was made in the first half of the 14th century. (Met. Mus., inv. 1975.369, New York, author's photo)
