An Arabic depiction of Aristotle

An Arabic depiction of Aristotle. Muslims consider Greek philosophers to be part of their own tradition, as do Christians and Western Europeans, in spite of the fact that these philosophers believed in many gods.  Notice how dark Aristotle is depicted in skin tone, and the Chinese style folding book on the book stand between them, the same sort of book we use today, which Chinese style wood pulp paper, the sort of thing Aristotle could not possibly have owned.
