This is the first version of the popular historical paining Migration of the Serbs. On its right side, the painting features a group of women and children on a covered wagon preceded by cattle. In the final version, this detail was altered upon request of Patriarch Georgije Branković in order to make an impression of the advancing organized military and national power, and not a group of refugees.
