This is a mosaic in the southwestern entrance of Hagia Sophia, the great cathedral built by Emperor Justinian in Constantinople, now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey.  The virgin Mary sits with child Jesus in the center.  To their left is the Emperor Constantine presenting a model of the city to them.  To their right is the Emperor Justinian presenting a model of the Hagia Sophia.  This symbolizes how temporal power bowed to Jesus, influencing law, cities, architecture, and art.  Photo credit:  Unknown, Public Domain.
