Hand made pictorial Persian tribla Qashqai rug telling the story of Shireen refrence: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khosrow_and_Shirin and Farhad known as Khosrow King of Persia
"Khosrow and Shirin", also spelled Khosrau and Shirn,Chosroes and Shirin, Husraw and Shireen and Khosru and Shirin, (Persian: خسرو و شیرین) is the title of a famous Persian tragic romance by Nizami Ganjavi (1141−1209). It tells a highly elaborated fictional version of the story of the love of the Sassanian king Khosrow II for the Aramean or Armenian princess Shirin, who becomes his queen. The essential narrative is a love story of Persian origin which was already well-known from the great epico-in historical poem the Shahnameh and other Persian writers and popular tales, and other works have the same title.
Variants of the story were also told under the titles "Shirin and Farhad" or "Farhad and Shirin".
