San Marco Mosaic

Painting Description

Spanning the main portal of San Marco’s Basilica, this mosaic sparkles even in the misty light that is so common in Venice. It is staggering for me to realize that this piece was created in the thirteenth century but still conveys a vigour and liveliness not common in modern creations.
