I took this image of the Empress Theodora and her court ladies depicted as a fabulous mosaic on the wall of the Basilica San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy for you to enjoy as a jigsaw download - and so you could admire the fabulous drapes, robes and jewellery in some detail. To download the jigsaw - Click here next Click Open, then click the .EXE file name and click Run, when you see the jigsaw puzzle, click Play Too many pieces? Try clicking on Trays on the top tool bar to create any number of resizeable trays to sort your pieces ........ you can also click the Cheat button and watch the puzzle solve itself! The software is by David Gray designer of Jigsaws Galore - the powerful jigsaw player and creator for Windows.
I thought it was fascinating to see that the hem of Theodora's robes are decorated with an image of the three magi - or wise men - who followed the star and who can also be seen in another mosaic panel Ravenna's Sant'Apollinare Nuovo!
