What Is This Screen Save from Life of Muhammad Television Program?

Can anyone please tell me what this is a picture of, and what its origin is?

I photographed the television screen from a PBS special called the "Life of Muhammad."  You can view the program by going to this "Life of Muhammad Video" public television link.

Thank you for your assistance.


  1. On the right of the picture is a representation of Mecca, which you can tell by the black Kaaba in the middle.

    The left is probably Medina, the 2nd holiest city for Muslims, and the location of Muhammad's tomb.

  2. Yes, of course. Thank you, Jon. I wonder when it was made? Can you read any of the writing around the rim?
