Barrel vault (detail)

c. 1200
Mosaic
Basilica di San Marco, Venice

The mosaics of the vaulting just to the west of the crossing cupola were influenced by the slightly earlier adjacent works. They include the Arrest, Crowning with Thorns, the Crucifixion, the Women at the Tomb, the Descent into Hell, and the Doubting Thomas.

The present picture shows the Descent into Hell.
