Portrait of Princess Zelda
Paintings, also known as Portraits, are quest items in A Link Between Worlds.
Paintings play a major role in the story and in the development of Link's ability to Wall Merge thanks to Ravio's Bracelet. Yuga, the main villain, is able to transform people into Paintings, leaving his transformed victims helpless against walls. Yuga traverses Hyrule looking for the Seven Sages and Princess Zelda, only to later turn them into special Paintings called Portraits.
These Painting forms are unlike normal paintings, however, and prove to be very hard to remove from the surface they are stuck to. Hyrule Soldiers can be seen trying to remove Paintings of enemy Soliders off the walls of Hyrule Castle, with very little success.
