Missals from Iram

Liturgical books from a lost city.
Ogata Korin (1658-1716) - Wind God and Thunder God
Note that the portrayal of the Wind God in this piece descends directly from depictions of Greek wind deities brought to what is today Afghanistan during the Hellenistic Era. In fact, it includes the Classical motif of the velificatio.
