Tails of Shahrazad from The Arabian Nights, 1001 Nights
These are the stories that saved the life of Shahrazad, who's husband--the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending. After 1001 nights, her life was spared forever. Many of these stories have weaved their way into our culture. "Sinbad the Sailor", "Ali Baba ad the Forty Thieves", "The Fisherman and the Genie" are just a few to mention. In this body of work, Shahrazad finds inspiration in a wise old soul who happened to be embodied as a cat. Together they change the course of history and birth "The Tails of Shahrazad."
