From the largest panel in the world, the Procession of Princes (Fürstenzug - Fürstenzug) from Meissen porcelain tiles is still full of history. It is located in Dresden. It depicts a ceremonial equestrian procession, which reflects the 1000-year-old history of the princely house of the Vettins, who reigns in Saxony. The panel consists of 25,000 tiles measuring 20x20 centimeters. They are laid seamlessly and made by the famous Meissen manufactory.

Fürstenzug is located on the outer wall of the gallery, which makes up the northern wall of the Stallhof stables in the complex of the Dresden Palace-Residence.

History of the panel

In 1589, this wall was decorated with a painting made of lime paints. In its place in 1872-1876, a painting was created using the sgraffito technique by the famous artist Wilhelm Walter. In order to preserve the masterpiece, in 1904-1907 the image was transferred to porcelain.

It was done like this: at first the picture was divided into many small squares, and then transferred to paper. Then the artists copied the drawings and transferred them to pre-fired tiles using special paints. The tiles were burned again.

During the bombing of Dresden in 1945 in February, the panel was not damaged. Only 200 tiles had to be replaced.

Rome and Me: Travel Review

Fiumicino is a very large airport. Get lost in it, if you flew to Rome for the first time, just spit. I go strictly following the signs to the exit, where an escort named Riccardo should meet me. The situation is somewhat complicated by the fact that I did not see Riccardo in the eye, so the meeting place at our place is designated as "at the exit, near the currency exchange."
