One day while King was seeing some of painting of previous King’s of that kingdom. He realized that he never had his portrait made.
So he thought to himself, “I should have painting of myself too, then my pupil will remember me for years to come..”
Next day, King asked his minister to make an announcement in kingdom and ask all painters to come to palace on decided day. Minister did same and on decided day all painters from kingdom came to his palace.
When all painters were present in court, King came and said, “I want you to make beautiful portrait of me..”
All of them started to discuss about it with each other.
After a few minute, King asked, “Who will paint my portrait?”
No one came forward as everyone was worried that it would be almost impossible to make of beautiful portrait of King with only one eye and one leg and if they make a bad portrait, it could angry king.
While everyone was discussing what to do.. One painter came forward and said that he would love to make a beautiful portrait of king.
After a month portrait was displayed for people of kingdom. Other painters also came to see that painting as they were curious about it and were surprised to see how beautifully that young painter has captured beauty and bravery of King even with only one eye and a leg.
