The Hagia Sophia is а marvelous building that transcends time and still impacts Christianity’s history. Its importance came to light recently with the decision to convert it into a mosque.

This acrylic painting depicts the exterior of the Hagia Sophia (“Holy Wisdom”, Sancta Sophia, Ayasofya) with the sea walls of Constantinople. It seems that Justinian’s dream of the Eastern Roman Empire’s sea power was imprinted here. The ellipticity of the dome seems to be the origin and the crowning of the peculiar light of the Hagia Sophia.
