Shahmaran is a figure or Goddess from Turkish and Kurdish folklore. Her name means 'King of the Snakes' (yes, 'king', though She is female), and She is depicted as having a woman's head, a snake's head tail, and six snaky feet. She is said to live deep in a cavern in a paradise-like garden filled with beautiful flowers and small ivory-colored snakes. She is quite old, and features in the One Thousand and One Nights collection.

Done in colored inks, in a particularly Turkish pallette of two shades of blue with two shades of red. The flowers in the background are taken from Turkish textiles, as are the borders under Her necklaces.

This design is available on prints through ArtPal.
