The execution of Faramarz
Public Notes
The king has Faramarz hanged upside down, then kills him with a rain of arrows.

[Note that many of the pictures fail to show Faramarz upside down.]

At least eight of the images shown here are embedded in texts that are either all or in part from the Faramarznama, not the Shahnama.
