Painting of Katarina Kosaca, the last Bosnian queen

New painting I made for children's educational book about famous Bosnian ladies. This one is imagination of Katarina Kosacha. Christian lady queen who attended to hand over Bosnia to Romans after her death. She visited Rome and the Pope and promised him Bosnia. After a while, she passed away there, where she was berried too. When Pope came to Bosnia to take this "present" he saw that majority of Bosnia already accepted Islam under Osman empire and that it would be very difficult to take it without problems so he returned without promised land.
