It's middle east folktale about three brothers that try to win the heart of the princess using magic itens.

I was not into the idea of create a generic middle east universe. I suggested that we should focus on the Persian culture,
since the text mention it once.

The Persian culture inspired me not just with the architecture, fashion and ethnicity but also with their own art.

The flowers, bushes and trees were based on their own ancient pictures and nature representations.

For the "princes from all over the world" part I had some great time with the research. 

I looked for to represent many kinds of royalness besides the european one.
