Basilica of Sant' Apollinare Nuovo 2

Basilica of Sant' Apollinare Nuovo 2

Even though I have many more photos of the mosaics in the Basilica of Sant' Apollinare Nuovo, I will not be sharing them during this series. There are many mosaics in this church, each telling a story from the Old and New Testaments, but I don't want to extend this series any longer than necessary to give you an idea of the type of art there. The fourth photo is another example of the beautiful mosaics in this 1500 year old church.

The lighting on a dove on the ceiling over the alter created shadows behind the sculpture. I liked the different positions of the head in each shadow. The ceiling of a small chapel to the left of the alter attracted my attention and I made several images of it.

Tomorrow I will start sharing photos of a church in Barcelona, the last I photographed during my photo expedition to the Mediterranean.
