    1. 1. EARLY CHRISTIANAND BYZANTINE ART By: Victoria Self-Melendez
    2. 2. Hello, My name is Victoria and I’m going to be yourtour guide for today. Today we are going to visit somevery interesting places regarding The Early Christianand Byzantine Art. Although a lot of the pieces that weare going to look at a lot of the artists’ of the them areunknown. The pieces of art work that we will be lookingat today are called Pantokrater, Apse mosaic of Sta.Pudenziana, Mosaic of Justinian and Retinue at ApseEntry, Mother of God, St. Apolinare Apse, and insidethe Hagia Sophia.
    3. 3. Pantokrater http://www.shroudofturin4journalists.com/pantocrator.htm This is a piece of artwork that is called the Pantokrater. Which was created in 544 AD. It is also located in St. Catherines Monastery in the Sinai. This piece of art work I believe is very beautiful and the blending of the different vivid colors are the Unity of this painting because the colors go together very well and is what I believe makes this piece of art work the most beautiful. http://www.allsinai.info/sites/map.htm Where “Pantokrater” is located
    4. 4. Apse mosaic of Sta. Pudenziana http://www.oneonta.edu/faculty/farberas/arth/Images/109images/early_christian/ sta_pudenziana_apse.jpgThis piece of art work is located in Santa Pudenziana, Rome andwas created in 390 although i don’t know who the artist is it islocated in a church. in this picture is a more realistic image of god which is known as christ, he looks as if he is more represented as a human rather then a symbol. Where it is located http://www.travelpod.com/ad/Basilica_di_Santa_Maria_Maggiore-Rome
    5. 5. Mosaic of Justinian and Retinue at Apse Entry http://traumwerk.stanford.edu/philolog/2006/01/byzantine_art_as_propaganda_ju.html This piece is located in San Vitale, Ravenna and was createdin 546 CE. This mosaic is located in the Hagia Sophia. In this piece of artwork as you can see has a lot of different colorsand shapes such as red, green, black, and other various colors that look like they could have been painted, I believe theshapes around the picture are very unique and is what brings out the pictures beauty the most. There are shapes of rectangles and circles that are also included. Where it is located http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&rls=en&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=map +of+San+Vitale,+Ravenna&fb=1&gl=us&hq=map+of+San+Vitale,+Ravenna&hnear=map+of +San+Vitale,+Ravenna&cid=0,0,7260935520202064338&ei=-ySiTuDII- a80AGzw5yWBQ&sa=X&oi=local_result&ct=image&ved=0CAUQ_BI
    6. 6. Mother of God This piece of art work is located in Greece and is located in many differentchurches. This is a very popular piece of art work, as you can see it is Christ and his mother who is known to many as Mary. I think this piece of art work is so beautiful, the rough textured lines around the piece of art work is very uniqueand the pictures dark blue and light pink/red colors brings out a lot of the piece as a wholes balance. “The Theotokos is pensive; she envisions Christ’s suffering and His way of the Cross.  In this type of icon, the Virgin’s pain andcompassion for her Child become a universal anguish for all those who suffer in a profane world.  The icon’s majesty, however, is not stained by such emotion.  The expression is not one of meek suffering, but rather profound http://www2.cytanet.com.cy/gogreek/theotokos_gr.gif Where it is located http://www.in2greece.com/english/maps/maps.htm
    7. 7. ST. APOLINARE APSE THESE ARE DIFFERENT MOSAICS THAT ARE LOCATED IN A CHURCH THAT IS IN RAVENNA, ITALY AND WAS CREATED IN 549. IN THESE MOSAICS IT LOOKS LIKE EACH MOSAIC IS TELLING A DIFFERENT STORY. I THINK THAT THE SMOOTH TEXTURE OF THE PAINTING MAKES IT LOOK SO PERFECTED AND IS THE EMPHASIS OF THE PAINTING BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A LOT OF COLOR ESPECIALLY THE GREEN AND IT BRINGS OUT THE A LOT OF THE PAINTINGS PRESENTATION.

    8. 8. Hagia Sophia Even though this is not specifically one piece of art work I believe thewhole Hagia Sophia itself is one big piece of art work. This is located inTurkey and the Hagia Sophia was created in 1520. It was created by the in about 5 years by Emperor Justinian. In the picture that is shown as you can see is a part of the Hagia Sophia, It is very beautiful and I believe the form of the Hagia Sophia’s structure for examples the archlooking things that are on the sides of the building are what shows a lot of it’s attention. This building is very unique and it is amazing how it http://www.hagia-sophia.net/ was built. I love everything about the Hagia Sophia. http://maps.google.com/maps? pq=turkey&hl=en&sugexp=kjrmc&cp=1&gs_id=6&xhr=t&q=map+of +turkey&client=safari&rls=en&gs_upl=&bav=on.
