Sort of veering off-topic a bit, but this mosaic came up on the image search for the Chanel 2011 collection.  Does anyone know who or what event it portrays, and where it's located?  I think it's beautiful and the colours are so vibrant. :)

Thanks

That's Empress Theodora and her entourage, on a wall of the Basilica di San Vitale, in Ravenna. There's a similar depiction of Justinian on the opposite wall.

I went to Greek school. ;) Both mosaics are incredibly common images when Byzantine history comes up.

That's no way to talk about Michal.

Umm, he's not Polish.  :police:

That's right.

Wasn't Pan Michal a Pole? Maybe that's who he was talking about.

He wrote in other thread he comes from Podlachian family. IDK whether he considers himself a Pole or a Podlachian.

Hi everyone, I'm back and quite alive. Sorry for redigging thread and a bit of awkward offtop offtop, but still what's better to do at 2 am. So, get ready for my Poliglish.

I'm of Polish/Podlachian/Belarusian/Ukrainian/Lithuanian descendance and consider myself being everyone of them.

Not a big fan of XIX century German theory of ethnicity.

If anyone cares, that is.
