Hagia Sophia Mosaic, Turkey

This Comnenus Mosaic, located on the eastern wall of the southern gallery of Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, dates from 1122. It represents the Virgin Mary with the Child Christ in her lap; on her right side stands the emperor John II Comnenus, holding a purse as a symbol of an imperial donation to the church. On the left of the Virgin is the empress Irene, wearing ceremonial garments and holding a scroll.
