Basilica of San Vitale - Ravenna (Italy)
The Church of San Vitale, the masterpiece of Byzantine art in Ravenna. Construction began in 526 by Bishop Ecclesius under the Ostrogothic queen Amalasuntha (d. 535) and was consecrated in 547 during the reign of the emperor Justinian. This octagonal church, built of marble and capped by a lofty terra-cotta dome, is one of the most important surviving examples of Byzantine architecture and mosaic work.

This is the only testament to the existance of a once-sprawling empire. The Ghurid Dynasty ruled from Afghanistan to northern India in the 1100s and 1200s, and was wiped out by the Mongols in 1222. All that remained were legends and this minaret, apparently alone in an empty valley.
Absolutely phenomenal pieces of fan art by euclase.
