The rider urges his mount with a short whip commonly used by Turkmen or Mongol horsemen. However, the detail of the face and the highly expressive, almost calligraphic lines, used to delineate the horseman and his steed, are typical of late 16th century Iranian drawings as exemplified by the work of artists like Sadiqi Beg. The inscription at the top of the image, which is not contemporary with it, reads "Portrait of Muhammad Shah Padshah."
