The frescoes of Church of St Savior-in-Chora are probably the most important works of Byzantine art existing today, in terms of beauty and quantity. These frescoes were painted at the same time as those of Giotto in Italy, and they appear to have the same vitality. These frescoes are fluid, and are quite different from the rather iconic rigid Byzantine representations. The colors of these fresoes are still splendid, and appear to be almost as if they were paintings.
