Deesis Christ Pantocrator Mosaic in Hagia Sophia

In Byzantine art, it is a traditional representation of the enthroned Messiah besieged by Deesis, Mary and John the Baptist; These two figures address Jesus on the Day of Resurrection for mercy in the name of mercy.

In the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, visitors to the southern gallery (upstairs) can find a fantastic mosaic view of the Deesis. Built at the end of the 13th century (probably 1261), this is the highest mosaic in the church and one of the most impressive mosaics in the world.

The) Byzantine style ler is typically associated with two-dimensional, flat, symbolic figurations, highlighted by stylized coloration with gold and blues (ultimately Christians pioneered this style as the rejection of the three-dimensional, naturalistic pagan designs of the Greeks. Romans). However, this mosaic is a m Byzantine style m consistent; furthermore, in one direction, there was no evolution on its own, but rather, a ebb flow from the stylized to the forward and the rest.

After the Fourth Crusade, the Hagia Sophia symbolizes the beginning of the emergence of a very realistic style (a characteristic that never fades with stylized coloring), pioneered in the Palaeologan Period (1261-1453). Although the Byzantine Empire was politically and financially shaken in this period (the Ottoman Turks had existed only two hundred years before the fall), the Byzantine mosaic art had reached its peak in a controversial manner.
