400 - 1453
From the early Byzantine era to the late Byzantine era, a transformation took place. In the beginning, people depicted in art were large and solemn. Later, those immortalized in artworks, started to look somewhat more noble, while at the same time succeptable to suffering. It was during this time that many glorious mosaics, paintings and miniature sculptures were created.
