here is the outcome of the byzantine art research...
i had to tone the reference right back as the religious notions were a concern..
In the end i focussed on creating the sombre mood and the golden feeling.. which you loose a little in the photo.. you'll just have to go see it y'all:)
i think it lacks a bit of the detailed 2D background work that you find in the original byzantine works, but on the whole, i think the window is a great contrast to the last one and feels really nice when you are next to it :)
i love love love the black perspex flooring:)
