Jesus in the Aya (Hagia) Sofia

Inside the Hagia Sofia -- Christianity's Original Center

This is one of the Mosaics from the upper floor of the Hagia Sofia.  There are 6 or 7 of these depicting either Jesus or Mary in combination and with others.   This Cathedral and possibly these mosaics are over 1700 years old.  It’s amazing to see something like this survive from the late Roman Empire in such fine shape.
