More incredible Byzantine religious art made up entirely of individual tiles like a giant jigsaw puzzle. 1315 to 1320 ad. Taken at the Chora Church, originally Christian, then Muslim and now a Museum. The seated Roman official is Quirinius, who replaced Herod. The full image, entitled 'enrollment for taxation', can be seen here:

Istambul is a city full of art and History. Good capture with fine sharpness and interesting moment. I remember to go by Taxi to this church...it was far away from the centre...in fact impressive art.

Hello Chris, you have discovered a real treasure trove with all these wonderful mosaics.
A good composition with the main characters in full detail.
The colours are still so bright even after all this time.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Chris.

A special moment captured with all these Mosaics, the love and craftmanship we see depict so much in thought and deed.
Have a good day.

stv ;o))

Ancient artworks are not only beautiful but also very durable! I won't have the patience to put all those tiles together. Nicely captured with good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
