Decapitation of Lazar PaintingWall painting "Decapitation of Lazar" is placed in a hall of building called Dom sindikata situated at Trg Kosoviskih junaka (Kosovo Heroes Square), covering a space of 40 m² and it is a work of renowned painter Milic of Macva. It was presented to the public on June 27, 1971 for the 600 anniversary of Krusevac. The painting was done in "al seco" technique. This wall composition was inspired by the lyrics of an epic poem “The Decapitation of Prince Lazar", which speaks about the suffering of the prince during the battle in Kosovo and his resurrection.

Painted in the manner of surrealism painting, insisting on narrative details, characteristic for artistic expression of the author, it represents cataclysmic fall of the church from which the head of Lazar on a stump emerges with aureole of martyr over it, and the stylized Nova Ravanica Church symbolically represent the strength of faith and devotion of the ruler.
