Item PL8

Dimensions: 48 x 24 cm.  $35.00 This vintage print has some slight wear around the edges of the border due to age; this does not affect the actual image and will not be visible once the print is properly matted and framed.

The caption on the bottom of the print reads as follows:

 The Interior of Chehel Sutun, Isfahan

The frescoes and paintings which cover the walls of the main reception hall depict historical scenes, such as the reception of an Uzbek king in 1646 (when the palace had just been completed), a variety of battles (including a more recent depiction of Nader Shah's victory over the Indian army at Kamal) and similar, less anecdotal pictures in the traditional miniature style. Meticulous restoration of many of the works is underway.
