Talisman - 18th c.

Amulets are often worn on the body or hung in architectural spaces. Their purpose is to protect against ailments and other types of danger and to encourage success and fortitude. This one is covered with micrographic writing, including verses from the Qur’an and the 99 Beautiful Names (al-asma al-husna) of God, which describe his divine attributes.
