Artist's Description

Hagia Sophia, is one of the most important monuments of Istanbul and definitely the most emblematic of the Byzantine Era. It is considered the epitome of the Byzantine architecture and one of its most impressive elements is its magnificent dome, with a diameter of 32 meters, standing 52 meters above ground level. The dome seems to be standing on thin air, as there are no columns to support it.
During the Ottoman Era it was turned into a mosque and finally it became a museum in the modern Turkish state.

Hagia Sophia (St. Sophia) is part of the “Historic Areas of Istanbul”, World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
