Portrait of a Portuguese Man Drinking Wine

An image of a Portuguese man drinking wine. Two Persian inscriptions, one consisting of a quartrain relating to wine, read:
He who has in his hand a cup
Has eternal power over Jamshid:
The water, from which Khizr found life,
Seek it in the tavern, where the cup is.
