Persian Miniature Painting: The Interstitial Anomaly

The Interstitial Anomaly
Here we see trees where one branch will split the interstice of another branch's bifurcation. This is an anomaly since branches grow towards light making it improbable for one branch to split the fork of another. I think the anomaly is intentional and worth exploring.

Detail "A Father Advises His Son About Love c. 1540"
This picture has been attributed to an artist close to Mir Sayid-Ali by Ivan Stchoukine and to Mirza Ali by Stuart Cary Welch. Simpson Haft Awrang Page 105

I am tentatively attributing this work to Shaykh Muhammad. I also notice that this one although forked is relatively straight up and down as compared to the trees drawn by Abdollah-e Mozahheb

The Interstitial Anomaly
Detail "The flight of the Tortoise" from the Haft Awrang of Jami. Attributed here to Abdollah-e Mozahheb
Here we see trees from two miniatures attributed here to Abdollah-e Mozahheb. As you can see the trunks curve much more than the trees from images attributed to La Miniature En Orient
