There is a miniature in a Persian manuscript in the Oriental department of the British Library of Miryam with the alchemists.

Miryam, the maiden versed in alchemy is being consulted by other alchemists. A miniature painting from a fifteenth century manuscript of Nizami's Khamsa ('Five Poems'), produced in Shiraz, Iran, 1435-1436.
