The Ancient Capital of Persia by IRCSS The Ancient Capital of Persia by IRCSS
The Throne Of Jamshid (Persian: Takhte Jamshid) was part of Persepolis which was one of the four capitals of the ancient Persian Empire. Persepolis was the spring capital and the center of of all the celebrations in the empire. The palaces have been burnt down by Alexander The Great and not much of it remains, so I had to do lots of digging before even start painting. Many thanks to Pascal Coste's reconstruction of the place, since I photo referenced his work in my painting and that saved me a good 20 hours of extra work. So this is actually quite historically accurate, I did lots of research for the color pallet which I used and the overall structure of the palace, however I did make some changes for the sake of composition, but the overall picture is accurate and precise. And I have to say with all the research it took forever to finish, by my standards which is maximum of 2 hours for a painting.

The copy right belongs to me, hence do not use, redraw or ... my artwork in anyway without my permission.

Hope you like it ^^

Persians, past and present, seem to maintain their flair for colourful decorations. Best Persepolis illustrations around here!

It's very beautiful. I love the great design of this temple and the colors are very beautiful. Especially the red in compination with these golden/blue colors. Also the garden with the pond in the front looks so relaxing. I wish I would live there. :love:

At that time they used to build nice and impressive monuments. Nowadays, you can only see ugly buildings and bunker-looking houses :(
