The background of the room is painted with battle scenes (according to the guides it took over 40 people more than 1 year to paint). Between the spectator and the wall there is a 13.5 metre distance 3 dimensional setting. There are original war elements such as weapons, military vehicles combined with huts, soil, etc. The whole thing is so realistic that it is hard to be able to differentiate the painted background from the 3 dimensional scenes. It then all starts revolving around the spectators.
