This circular mirror without handle, originally held by means of a ribbon passed through the pierced knob on its back, represents an interesting example of mixed influences. Its shape follows Chinese models, while the well-wishing kufic inscription, the running animals, and the vegetal scroll motif covering the entire surface are purely Islamic.
