The use of colors has been rejected, often because of the many changes experienced by the pigment over time. Weather, the fragility of the layers, or perishability of the organic pigments are the main reasons. Other damage can occur due to manipulation, conservation treatment, and renovation works.

Persepolis era conocida como una de las ciudades mas ricas en pinura.
