Aya Sofya – „Deesis“ mosaic
Aya Sofya – „Deesis“ mosaic
A masterpiece of Byzantine mosaic art, located on the wall of the southern gallery and beautiful under the natural light falling in from the window to its side, this mural section featuring three figures is located at the center of the very wide “Last Judgment” scene. The figures in this section known as the “Deesis” are of Jesus Christ in the middle, The Virgin Mary to his right and John the Baptist to his left.

This mural, badly damaged in the lower half, is the foremost among the mosaics of Haghia Sophia in artistic value. It is spectacular because the pieces used for the mosaic are quite little and this made the mosaic look like a picture. It may be admired comfortably during any visit to the museum, since it receives sufficient daylight at every hour of the day.
