The 1453 Panoramic Museum creates a three dimensional depiction of the conquest of Istanbul by the Ottoman Empire on 29th May 1453.
This siege itself was of epic proportions; at the ripe age of 21, Mehmet II ('the Conqueror') led an army which would end more than a millennium of Christian rule and take over what was then the very well fortified city of Constantinople.
The 1453 Panoramic Museum Museum is situated next to the old Topkapi City Walls, opposite the very spot where the siege occurred. It was created with the help of eight artists and a budget of over 1 million Euros and offers a full panorama- in vertical as well as horizontal order- of this important historical battle. The domed roof is also painted to create the illusion of a sky.
This incredibly detailed piece of artwork has almost 10,000 detailed figures of Ottoman and Byzantine soldiers; the same number of live models were used in the painting process.
