Work by an anonymous Armenian artist, from the same manuscript as this work.

In the course of history the borders of Armenia have often changed. But there always was a core: the valley of the Araks river and the area around Mount Ararat. The mountains made it difficult for neighboring powers to occupy the region. This allowed an independent Armenian culture to flourish.

In Armenian art, architecture always came first. Painting was limited to the illumination of manuscripts and to fresco's.
