The two heroes fought on opposite sides during the war between the kingdoms of Iran and Turan. Our folio shows the moment where Rustam mortally wounds his opponent Sorhab on the battlefield. Sorhab, suspecting his father to be Rustam, twice asks not to fight during the encounter. When forced by Rustam, hesitant and anxious he relents to. It is only after killing Sohrab that Rustam realized he was his son, recognizing on Sohrab's arm the bracelet he had given Tahmina, Sohrab's mother, long before.
