I found this rather beautiful version of the Ibn Umayl or Senior with the book of the Sun and Moon, familiar in many European manuscripts and books. One of the best known being in the Aurora consurgens.

The Silvery Water painting. Compilation of alchemical texts, probably Baghdad, 1339. Topkapi Palace Library, MS. A. 2075, fols. 2v–3r.
