Persian Handmade Pictorial Carpet of The King Solomon shows the meeting of Belgheis, Queen of Sheba, with Solomon the Prophet, which takes place in the luxurious palace of Solomon. This invitation was made on behalf of Solomon by a Eurasian hoopoe, which had gone to the Queen of Sheba, and the Queen came to Solomon with many gifts of gold, spices, and precious stones.
The columns of the palace, some of which are covered with colorful fabrics and jewels, are clearly visible in large numbers in the picture, and the stone walls are in places behind a large curtain. There are, golden statues of stone lions symbolizing the king's bodyguards next to the stairs. A number of members of the king's family and courtiers, along with servants and maids, half-naked men and women, are present in the parliament and next to the throne. The Queen of Sheba is climbing the paved stairs and reaching Solomon. The Queen of Sheba is wearing a long skirt and Solomon with long beard, in a traditional costume and a turban on his head, is waiting for the Queen of Sheba up the stairs.
At the bottom right of the carpet are a few peacocks next to a table with gifts on it, and there is a small monkey next to one of the servants holding a large hand fan.
Solomon also called Jedidiah, was, according to the Hebrew Bible, Old Testament, Quran, and Hadiths, a fabulously wealthy and wise king of the United Kingdom of Israel who succeeded his father, King David. The conventional dates of Solomon's reign are about 970 to 931 BCE, normally given in alignment with the dates of David's reign. He is described as king of the United Monarchy, which broke apart into the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah shortly after his death. Following the split, his patrilineal descendants ruled over Judah alone (Wikipedia).
The Queen of Sheba is a figure first mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. In the original story, she brings a caravan of valuable gifts for the Israelite King Solomon. This tale has undergone extensive Jewish, Islamic and Ethiopian elaborations, and has become the subject of one of the most widespread and fertile cycles of legends in the Orient (Wikipedia).
