Giustiniano e Teodora | San Vitale

⚉ PANEL OF THEODORA ⚉

The artistic-sacral suggestion becomes complete. The ostentation of court, represented with polychrome cubes and a clever use of mother-of-pearl, exalts Theodora. The empress, surrounded by a halo of glory holds the chalice of wine. The power of mosaic suggestion reaches its apex: all the figures lose bodily form and dissolve into pure symbolic abstraction.
