Most Influential Era of Arts and Design...

Master of the Sophien Cathedral of Ohrid

      I chose the Byzantine and Medieval Art as the most influential era of art and design. First is the Medieval art of the Western world , over 1000 years of art in Europe, and at times the Middle East and North Africa. The Medieval art was produced in many media, and the works that remain in large numbers include sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, metalwork and mosaics. Then the Byzantine art is the artistic products of the Eastern Roman, or Byzantine, Empire, as well as the nations and states that inherited culturally from the empire.

      I  chose this as the most influential era of arts and design simply because this paintings or art is born for to remind about Jesus, Saints and Apostles, which where ever church we go we can see this type of art. And we all know that in every corner of the world we can feel Jesus Christ, even thou we have different God in each corner of the world still we can remember him, see him because of all the God's that we are praising we have only ONE GOD. And this art which is Byzantine and Medieval art reminds us of him.

     That's why this is the most influential era of arts and design. Besides this painting are really beautiful. I also wanted to learn on how to create this kind of art. Whenever I see this in the church I feel relaxed and I enjoy watching this. And as you can see all churches have this in their roofs, door, chairs and walls. Just like what I have said Byzantine and Medieval art is born to remind about Jesus Christ.
