Apse mosaic of the Virgin and Child. In the centre of the quarter dome is the figure of Virgin Mary (Theotokos) seated on a throne with jewelled cushions, holding baby Jesus . This mosaic is significant as it is the first figured mosaic created following the iconoclasm period of Hagia Sophia. The mosaic dates back to the 9th century. The great rounded calligraphic panes on the walls of the main place had been written by Kazasker Mustafa Izzet Efendi who was one of the famous calligraphers during the repairs between 1847 and 1849 of Sultan Abdülmecid period (1839-1861). Rounded calligraphic panes with 7.5 meters of diameter are written by gilt on green background made of hemp.
