The tall figures and the large blossoms on the curved tree above Rustam are similar to another Shahnama illustration attributed by B.W. Robinson to Isfahan and dated 1604, (B.W. Robinson, Persian Paintings in the India Office Library, London, 1976, no. 1038, p.202). The outlines of the forms found on this painting are pricked which indicates it was highly valued a drawing and was used as a stencil for other works.
