Frescos miniatures

As I mentioned earlier the whole Sheki Khan Sarayi is decorated by frescos miniatures that describe/mean something. Here is a small piece that decorates part of the wall in one of the rooms describing some battle where most probably Khan gained a victory. Historians know the meanings of those flags and are able to tell long stories looking at just this one piece. Colors used in drawing those fresco miniatures are totally natural and able to display their beuty even now since they were drawn in XVIII century.
