Mash'Allah .... wow!   Very sweet piece of art;  also a very gripping and concise elucidation on Muslim females' home schooling in Middle-Eastern medieval times .......  

though I too concur with the cultural inconsistencies in the painting you folks pointed out.  

Teacher coming in with those big shoes; putting books on the floor which apparently proves as brother hinted, it's a casual educational lesson in a storytelling atmosphere.  Those books must be of prose or poems.  Certainly not even the man-written articles on the Islamic Faith otherwise he would never put them on the floor.  And of course NO question about any Muslim handling the Noble Quran like that, Nauzbillah again and again.  No need to even to mention it.  In western countries they just don't know nor understand such an aspect and thus the obvious oversight by Ettore Simonetti.   

Yeah, very high couch, about the height of a treasure chest, ha?   The lady in the image with one foot dangling doesn't look too comfortable in that elevated and narrow seating.   Middle Eastern sitting spaces are actually very low, those comfy Middle-Eastern floor sofas in modern times replacing the cushion seating and cushion headrest against the wall in medieval times. 
But otherwise, I really like this painting and the realistically intellectual idea it portrays.
