Another unfinished series that I did in 2017-18. This one was based on a real story about the Rus Vikings and the Byzantine Empire, with the Turkic nomads as a third side. The story of how a Rus prince lost his head (literally) and his son made an unprecedented alliance with the big boss of the eastern Mediterranean. The illustrations here are: 1- Basil II the "Bulgar slayer", 2- Anna Porphyrogenita, 3- Sviatoslav of Kiev, 4- Kurya Khan, 5- Cuman warrior (not totally related with that story in particular, but would appear in the scene some years later), 6- Rus druzhina. #art #artist #digitalart #digitalpainting #illustration #arte #painting #byzantine #byzantium #byzantineempire #constantinople #greek #orthodox #silk #medieval #middleages #earlymiddleages #vikings #viking #rus #ukraine #kiev #kievanrus #slavic #slav #pecheneg #sviatoslav #turk #turkic

There is more than a hint of the medieval to Doucet’s c1910 dress, Byzantine influenced motifs break up the fabric and hanging sleeves frame the arm. Even the jewelled embellishment mirrors a medieval girdle suspended from the waist, Bunka Gakuen #1910s #1910sfashion #medievaldress #medievalstyle #byzantine #embellished #beadwork #doucet #edwardian #edwardianstyle #edwardianfashion #embellisheddress #dresshistory #fashionhistory

Το θέμα είναι να πιστέψης σ’ Αυτόν που είναι η ζωή· να εγκαταλείψης τον εαυτό σου ολόκληρο σ’ Αυτόν τον εαυτό σου, με την πίστι και την απιστία σου· τον εαυτό σου, ζωντανό ή πεθαμένο. Δεν έχει τελικά σημασία εάν νοιώθω ότι ζω ή ό­τι είμαι νεκρός· ή εάν και οι άλλοι νομίζουν ότι πέθανα. Σημασία έχει να βρίσκωμαι εγκαταλελειμμένος κοντά σ’ Αυτόν που είναι αγάπη. Καλύτερα να είμαι άρρωστος και νεκρός κοντά σ’ Αυτόν που είναι η ζωή, παρά ζωντανός κατά φαντασία, μακριά Του. Σημασία έχει η τόλμη της πίστεως και η δύναμι της υπομονής, που ξεπερνά τη λογική. «Πάντα δυνατά τω πιστεύοντι». Αυτό που μας σώζει δεν είναι αυτό που κάνομε ή μπορούμε να κάνωμε εμείς· αλλά αυτό που ανατέλλει από την τόλμη της πίστεως και της υπομο­νής, από την τόλμη της θυσίας του εαυτού μας (έ­στω και άρρωστου). Μπορούμε να πούμε ότι και η δημιουργία του κόσμου όλου είναι μια πράξι τόλμης και θυσίας του Θεού. Δημιουργηθήκαμε από αγάπη, που είναι θυσία και προσφορά. Σωζόμαστε με την ίδια κίνησι της αγάπης και της προσφοράς του εαυτού μας από ευγνωμοσύνη σ’ Αυτόν πού πρώτος μας αγάπησε. Στην καρδιά της θείας Λειτουργίας λάμπει αυ­τή η αλήθεια της θείας δόξης και αγάπης· της θυ­σίας του Υιού του Θεού και της πίστεως που σώζει τον κόσμο. Αρχιμανδρίτης Βασίλειος Γοντικάκης ( Προηγούμενος της Ιεράς Μονής Ιβήρων, Αγίου Όρους). —————————————————— Φωτο: το ιερό βήμα του Καθολικού της Ιεράς Μονής Παναγίας Δοβρα στην Βέροια. ———————————— #temple #monastery #greekorthodox #orthodox #christian #church #liturgy #Greece #greek #priest #monk #god #religion #jesus #architecture #byzantine #art #lifestyle #blackandwhite #holy #saint #cross #pray #praying #prayer #candle #candles #sonya9 #discovergreece

Above them ran birds (including several birds of prey) between shells at the bottom of the alveoli.

My husband, a hobbyist blacksmith (can’t quite say “amateur” since he has been selling so much lately) showing off the stainless steel Byzantine chain necklace I made for him for Xmas. He has a matching bracelet, too, but no pic of that yet. #byzantine, #blacksmith, #byzantinechainmaille, #pandabearforge, #jewelry, #silversmithing, #chainmail, #chainmaille

A rare Iconoclastic mosaic on the apse. As a result of Muslim conquest the Byzantines believed that God had abandoned them. One school or thought associated this with imagery, noting the lack of figures in Muslim art. As such during the 8th and 9th century icons were banned and simple crosses such as this were in favour. There are stories of families and religious figures hiding icons behind plaster to save them from destruction. #hagiaeirene #hagiairene #holypeace #byzantinearchitecture #byzantine #basilica #roman #romanempire #justinian #church #churchhunting #churchcrawling #architecture #history #historicarchitecture #heritage #iconoclasm #romanbrick #cross #dome #istanbul #constantinople #eastmeetswest #glass #dome #windows #churchwindow #mosaic #apse #orthodoxy

Dowm the nave of the Hagia Eirene and up into the lofty dome. The first church to be completed in Constantinople apparently built on the site of a former Greek Temple. A message to the population from the newly Christian empire. Sadly there is a colony of pigeons living in the building and the net put up to protect the floor limits viewing the remaining details in the dome. #hagiaeirene #hagiairene #holypeace #byzantinearchitecture #byzantine #basilica #roman #romanempire #justinian #church #churchhunting #churchcrawling #architecture #history #historicarchitecture #heritage #brick #romanbrick #brick #dome #istanbul #constantinople #eastmeetswest #stone #dome #windows #dome #heritage #orthodox

Σε κάμπο χρυσό – Βυζαντινό και Χριστιανικό Μουσείο Αθήνας Εικόνες, ψηφιδωτά, τοιχογραφίες σε «κάμπο» (βάθος) χρυσό μας πηγαίνουν στον υπέροχο και, σαφώς λιγότερο περπατημένο χώρο του Βυζαντίου. Μωσαϊκά δάπεδα σχεδόν ατόφια, αποτοιχισμένα από την παλαιότερη χριστιανική βασιλική της Αθήνας, αλλά και μέλη από τον χριστιανικό Παρθενώνα, εντυπωσιάζουν τον επισκέπτη. Ένα κάθετο ταξίδι στον δικό μας Μεσαίωνα, που όμως είχε τις πιο πρώιμες αναλαμπές αναγέννησης, αυτές που προετοίμασαν εκείνη της Δύσης…. #actionplus #athens #byzantine #museum #culture #xenagisi

"Eleanor, my child... If only you knew what great things you were destined to become." ---------- More Ciel style practice, this time with El and Matriarch LaSalle, one of the rulers of their country. El's childhood was mostly filled with training and grooming to become one of the next Matriarchs. Though the sweet, quiet moments were few and far between, El has never truly questioned her importance in LaSalle's life. At least, not until the events of Ciel take place. 😏 ---------- Check out my profile for more art! Hope you enjoy--thanks for looking! ❤️ ---------- #art #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #instaart #animatedstyle #girlsincomics #drawingoftheday #dailydrawing #illustration #color #colorillustration #digitalillustration #comicartist #sciencefiction #sciencefictionart #art #exterior #hitech #scfigarden #comicbook #character #drawing #illustration #photoshop #Ciel #byzantine
