Nasreddin is a legendary folk character in the Middle East and Central Asia, portrayed as a wise fool, clever simpleton, or instructive prankster.
Nothing is conclusively known about the person who originally inspired the stories, but popular tradition considers him a minor cleric from Anatolia in the 13th or early 14th century. The oldest surviving manuscripts containing tales of Nasreddin date from 16th century, and are Turkish. 

The Miniature painting is very fine-finished colorful picture art, made with very thin brushes using watercolor, gouache and gold water. Often seen in old writing books, and does not reflect the sensation of light, shadow and volume.
