WELCOME IN THE NEW YEAR
WITH THE TREE OF LIFE
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
The painting of the Tree of Life above once decorated the palace of the rulers of the Shaki Khanate. Built in the late 18th century, this magnificent summer residence with its luminous stained glass windows and ornate design is located in present day Azerbaijan.
