This piece shows the turbulent colour in the background beautifully contrasting with the subtle Gold in the foreground. It contains poetry by Abi Hemam al-Merri, referenced in the book Ayoon el-Akhbar of Ebni Qutaybeh and has been narrated by Abbasi Khalifah Al Mutawakkel. The poem could be interpreted like this:
Be the first to criticize yourself. It is of no use criticizing the nearest and dearest if you are blind about your own faults. As you are responsible first and foremost about your deeds before anyone else.
