HilyeIstanbul, 1110-1698Ink, colors, and gold on paper mounted on board
This hilye-i-saadet was written by Abdullah Efendi in a form that departs from Hâfiz Osman’s model.  As was the practice at the time, this hilye was originally pasted onto a wooden panel and hung on a wall, illuninated by an oil lamp. Because it was not protected by glass, the paper darkened, and woodworms riddled the panel with holes.
