One of the pictures from Alphonse Mucha's Slav Epic. He painted 20 canvases over the course of 18 years to celebrate the history of Czechs and other Slavs. This canvas was on display at the Veletržní palác (Trade Fair Palace), the national art gallery in Prague, along with four of the others in the cycle. The picture doesn't convey the scale of this thing: it's roughly four meters on a side. The others on display were a little smaller, but they're all immense.
