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. Smiley

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. Wink 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.
