Aalieyah Creach

As realism died down in this time frame we saw that the style in which the art was created changed as well. The Byzantine used art as a way to depict their many beliefs and tell the story of for example the imperial purple robes at the Church of San Vitale Christ. Which later appeared onto God I think if I am recalling that correctly. Art was used by these people to tell the stories of higher beings it seems in order to make it easier to understand.
