English: Saladin and Guy de Lusignan
Nederlands: Saladin en Guy de Lusignan
This masterpiece depicts two of the most important men in the crusader era after a decisive moment in battle. King Guy of Lusignan has been portrayed with Christian royal red cloathing and King Saladin has been portrayed with royal Islamic green cloathing. King Lusignan is held captive in golden chains while wearing his armor underneath his cloathing. King Saladin has been depicted wearing magnificent golden regalia while making a religious shape with his hands. The painting shows us how the western world thought of the crusader era and it's subsequent losses during the first quarter of the seventeenth century.
