Religious Panel Painting At The Byzantine Museum, Ioannina, Greece

There's a nice museum in Ioannina, filled with ancient artifacts from the area. The highlight of the Byzantine museum is its fine collection of religious panel paintings. A close look reveals all sorts of interesting details.

Somebody didn't get the dress code memo. Such a rebel.

Another wardrobe outlier, hoping hair is a substitute. The hell of halos, running into portrait problems in crowd scenes.

Taking the halo effect to extremes. Forget the body, leave the halo.

Violence is inevitable. First the hands, then the head.
"Relax, it's all going to be OK," says the man in Prince's robe.
