As Lucas already stated, I too think the Byzantine art seemed to devolve somehow. to me it seems that art is not about the skill of the artist, or ask focused on little details as we have seen in previous art, but is more geared towards getting the message across. This art is being used as a means to tell a story, the stories in the scriptures, or of the saints or martyrs. I think the culture was less focused on evolving their art, and moe focused as strictly using art as a communication device.
