Wall paintings: the 'portrait' gallery
The images above show fragments that have been fully conserved by Vadim V. Yagodin in Nukus (Uzbekistan).
Photos of untreated portrait fragments. The two above images belong to a single large fragment, providing important evidence of the relative location of the portraits.
Each bust portrait was individually framed with a black line. This fragment shows the interstice of four frames. From larger fragments we know that there were at least three horizontal tiers of portraits.
