Photographer's Note

Another view of the striking Greek Orthodox Mosaics on the ceiling of the amazing Chora Church in Istanbul. After the invasion of the Ottaman Turks in the 15th century, it was converted to a Mosque. It was more recently converted to a museum, and many of the frescoes and mosaics have been painstakingly restored after centuries of damage from earthquakes and the Islamic practice of covering icons and images.
