There was excellent response to my posting of the mosaics of the Spasa na Krovi, so, here’s another example of the mosaic work in that church. It’s simply stunning, isn’t it? No doubt, you can see why I detest those who attack such work as “too Western”. If this doesn’t move you to tears by its beauty (you needn’t be a believer to see that!), you have no soul.
