Another of the well-preserved mosaics in Hagia Sophia reminding visitors of days gone by when Jesus Christ was worshiped in this grand edifice. This is the earliest of the mosaics to survive the ages and be uncovered in recent years. The mosaic of The Virgin and Child is thought to have been produced in the late 9th century!
To see the first mosaic I posted, click on the thumbnail to the left to see the November 13, 2011 post of the mosaic of Jesus.
