When the iconoclasts lost power,a new golden age began.Constantinople was still a city of great treasure and was the most richest city in the whole world.Artist made small, beautiful things that are dedicate rather impressive.Compared with the grand monuments of the time of justinian in much more human terms.
Saint Mark’sThe Saint Mark’s has the same plan as the Little Metropolitan except it is many times larger. It begun in 1063 and it has the same domes as the Hagia Sophia, it has the same row of windows to let the light into the building. The sun shines through the gold mosaics and makes the domes look like golden shells hung in the air. The glow of the gold mosaics make visitors feel that heaven is on earth and thy just walked inside of it.The Mosaics at DaphniThe mosaics are like an echo on the great age of greek artThe picture of christ is very frightening because his face is very solemnThe artist of the picture of christ wanted to show christ as the tremendous power that rules over the fate of man.There are only four scenes from the life of christ on the pendentivesMary and Saint John are on the crucifixion painting and they are on the foot of the cross mary is on one side and saint john is in the other side.The sculpture who made christ tried to make him (christ) as perfect as he could instead of an ordinary humanThe artist didn't try to make the painting as what actually happened or show what the real scene was, instead he created a symbol of the crucifixion.
