The family Vay meant to raise the memory of the 1000 year old Hungarian Conquest with this ceiling fresco. In the picture one of the moment of the battle of Nikápoly ( 1396. ) can be seen.  The moment when one of the member of the family Vay , Titusz ( Tihamér ) Vay helps king Zsigmond to escape from the battlefield.
