The nave dome fresco from the Basilica of Saint Vitale in Ravenna, Italy. (6th century) The fresco in the dome is well preserved and extremely realistic in its appearance. The angels, flowers and clouds appear to float near an opening in a dome surrounded with ornate, seemingly three-dimensional decorations. The composition draws your eye through the dome and up towards heaven.
