Kariye, Ayasofya

Kariye, Church of the Holy Savior in Chora.
Kitties are everywhere.

Mosaic of Mary.
Mosaics.
Peter and Paul.
The J man.
A bunch of saintly dudes.
Frescoed dome ceiling.
Outside Ayasofya of Hagia Sofia in Istanbul.
Another expansive place.
Just staggering.
Muslim and Christian symbols peacefully co-existing for a thousand years.
Follow the line of the stairs of the Muslim pulpit to the image of Mary and Jesus on the ceiling.
Mary, Jesus, John.
Constantine, Mary and Jesus, Constantine's mother.
I think this is Constantine, Jesus, and Constanitine's daughter that Constantine was always trying to marry off for political gain.
On the sidewalk, outside a brass shop.
