MEDIUM SIZE REPLICA

The Virgin who occupies the center of the apse semidome is represented enthroned with the Child seated in her lap. She rests her right hand on the Child's right shoulder, and her left, which holds a handkerchief, on the Child's left knee. The figure is complete except for an area of loss (roughly o.80 m. high and 0.70 wide) on the Virgin's left side corresponding to her left forearm and elbow, the Child's left hand, and part of the upper cushion placed on the throne. There is, furthermore, a fissure, caused by a structural crack in the shell of the semidome, which runs down the middle of the figure to the apex of the central window. It is clear that the mosaic was executed at a time when the semidome had already undergone the deformations it exhibits today.
