Why this is a
Masterpiece

The wall decoration which is composed of 24 tiles comprises eight pictures. These deal with subjects of the Islamic mysticism (Sufism). They depict scenes from oriental love and dervish poems. If one reads the two rows of pictures from the right to the left, a whole Sufi program emerges. Both tiles on the right give reasons for taking the mystical way of knowledge. The four scenes in the middle show different stages of the mystical search, and the tiles on the left depict the end of the way, the merging with God.

History of the Object
Philipp Walter Schulz travelled in Persia between 1897 and 1899. He acquired the tile picture in Isfahan, most probably in the bazaar.
