Photographer's Note

Here we can see a detail of one of the altars inside Spilled Blood Church, this way you can pay attention in the quality of the mosaics they created, at same time the artwork in stones around is impressive. What I guessed interesting is the fact Mary and her son have intense black eyes, while in western art they are shown with blue eyes usually, of course the most probable is they had brown eyes and brown hair, as was usual in the jew population at that age.

Temos aqui um detalhe de um dos altares no interior da Igreja do Sangue Derramado. Aqui vocês podem reparar no delicado trabalho em mosaicos e, ao mesmo tempo, notar como esses relevos em pedra nas colunas são refinados.
Algo que achei curioso aqui é o fato de Maria e Jesus terem os olhos bem pretos, geralmente na arte ocidental eles tem olhos azuis, quando na realidade é muito mais provável que ambos tivessem olhos e cabelos castanhos, como era comum na população judia da época.
