Detail of San Marco Basilica, Venice.tiff
I shot this on the walls of St. Mark's Basilica.  It was just a little panel, perhaps a foot and a half long by a foot high.  All by itself.  I wondered whether it was loot stolen from Byzantium during the Fourth Crusade.  So much in the Basilica is loot (e.g., the four horses).
