As part of the ceremony, Calkoen attended a meeting in the divan or council chamber of the palace, after which he and his retinue were offered a meal by the grand vizier. This meal is shown here. At centre, across from the grand vizier, Calkoen sits on a low stool, flanked by two interpreters. The sultan could listen (unnoticed) behind the small grilled window above –hence called ‘the Eye of the Sultan’.

Select the material of your choice

For every art print we offer different materials & sizes. Thus, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • Acrylic glass print: The acrylic glass print, often denoted as a an art print on plexiglass, will turn the artwork into marvellous décor. What is more, it offers a good alternative option to canvas and dibond fine art prints. Your own copy of the artwork is being manufactured with modern UV printing technology. This makes impressive and vivid print colors. With an acrylic glass fine art print contrasts and painting details become identifiable thanks to the very subtle tonal gradation. The plexiglass protects your selected fine art print against light and heat for between 40-60 years.
  • Canvas print: A canvas print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wood stretcher. It creates a sculptural impression of three-dimensionality. A printed canvas of this work of art will allow you to transform your custom fine art print into a large collection piece like you know from art galleries. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without the use of extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for any type of wall.
  • The poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a UV printed sheet of canvas with a granular texture on the surface. It is suited for putting your art copy using a personal frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm around the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Aluminium dibond (metal print): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with an impressive depth effect. For your Direct Aluminium Dibond option, we print the selected artwork right onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface. The bright and white components of the original work of art shine with a silky gloss but without the glow. Colors are bright and luminous, the fine details of the print are crisp and clear.
