Hagia Sophia Iconography
As I promised artist Josh (and his doves) I am posting pics I took of the awesome Hagia Sophia, a 4th Century cathedral in Istanbul built by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian. It's amazing to actually see this, though not up close because this is like the 3rd biggest cathedral in the world. apologies though for just two pics of the icons, most of the pics i took focused on the architecture, which is more of my interest. It was a finalist in the recent seven wonders of the world vote.
So here it is, Josh, a post dedicated to your post on icons. Here's to a kindred spirit!
