Painting by Metin Sharifov
In Azerbaijan ram fights were a part of traditions from ancient times. Rams carried a symbolic meaning, that’s why graves of soldiers and commanders were decorated with sculptures of rams.
This painting represents a ram fight in front of the ancient double gate of Old City (Baku).
My goal is to promote the art of Azerbaijan and improve my experiences.
