Traditionally, they are painted with local bright paints over the black background and are known for their delicate and smooth design, abundance of golden shading, and accurate silhouettes of flattened figures. Accent colours are always red and bright. 

The school appeared on the base of icon painting. During the time it was transformed into a great and world famous type of art.
