And his Retinue Emperor Justinian Image Description Influence on society The Mosaic Materials Used Accompanied by twelve men that is comparison to Christ.
Some of the men bear Christian objects a sensor, a jewelled cross, an ornately-covered book.
To the left are secular officials, including military officers.
Formal hieratic pattern overcomes naturalism little feet stepping on each other's toes.
There is nevertheless green earth and an individuation of the faces.
The men are positioned frontally and symmetrically, with Justinian in the centre of the group. Materials Used This is a mosaic where it is the art of decoration with small pieces of coloured glass, stone or other material.
This mosaic is of stone or glass cubes which yield deep, full colours and give to the church interior appearance. The mosaic is; Bishop Maximianus Emperor Justinian "Christ as Cosmocrator" and Comparism > a 547 A.D. colourful and detailed apse Mosaic, in a Byzantine style.

> The two dimensional landscape can be found in the Church of San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy.

> Justinian sought to restore the territorial boundaries of the Empire. Location Formal Analysis > Although it does not make logical sense for the men to all be the same height because of overlapping, line creates unity.

> The border also creates line, centring the group of men like a portrait would.

> the clothing all flows downward toward the feet, where all the feet are pointed outward. The piece is linearly divided both horizontally and vertically, creating symmetry. Symmetry and Perspective > The mood is sombre yet quaint, giving a feeling of importance to the emperor’s message.

> The painting was probably made as both a message to his people of his dominance and prestige.

Maximianus was consecrated bishop of Ravenna in 546 by Pope Vigilius in Patras, Greece
He completed the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna, and also built Sant'Apollinare in Classe and several other churches
He was apparently selected by emperor Justinian. Bishop Maximanus Justinian I (482 – 14 November 565), commonly known as Justinian the Great, was Byzantine Emperor from 527 to 565.
Justinian sought to revive the Empire's greatness and reconquer the lost western half of the classical Roman Empire.
In the piece of mosaic know as Emperor Justinian and his retinue mosaic Justinian is wearing the crown and a halo to show he is the leader of the church and the state. Emperor Justinian Ryan Mangion
