A 12th/13th century painted paper charm showing the shaytan armed with a curved sword and riding an elephant. It was found in the ruins of Fustat on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.

Jazrafil or Jasrafíl, is a jinni who is represented with blue features, red hair and beard, horned, and with a lion's tail. In his right hand he holds a drawn sword which passes across his body. The left hand is raised but it is not clear whether it is empty or not. His legs, in red trousers, hang down the flanks of the elephant almost to the ground. The elephant is represented with a blue body.
