Many ancient Iranian stories are artistically emblazoned by poets as well as painters and artists. The story of Bahram Gurs hunting trip with his slave girl- Kanizak- is among a number of anecdotes about the life of the Sassanid king that has been told differently by various sources. Comparisons of the details have taken distinct art forms and descriptions. With poets like Ferdowsi and Nezami, who have chronicled the diversities and common grounds of this subject; we are able to appreciate the effect and the possible influence of their poems on the art forms. In this research, which was based on descriptive and comlerative methods, after further review of Ferdowsi and Nezamis expressions of the story of Bahram and Azadeh, the related images have been categorized in two parts: the pre-Islamic artifacts/relics and the Islamic period. Images depicted in ceramic, metal, and tile works were separately evaluated and noted to correspond with the lyrical works.It is also shown that this anecdote has been famous during a long period in a vast area. The resemblance between details in Ferdowsis descriptions and pre-Islamic  images suggests the likelihood of error in dating those artworks or the probability that Ferdosi had access to images as the resource. About the Islamic period it is shown that Ferdosis narration of this story has been more famous than other narrations including Nizamis.
