Printed from our collection of 19th century engravings from the book, Traité d’Architecture, Paris, this exterior elevation of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul will bring neoclassical style and architectural interest to your space. We’ve framed it with a sleek brass-finish frame for a touch of updated sophistication. While it looks fantastic on its own, it becomes the indisputable focal point of a wall when grouped with the other three engravings from this collection.
"Hagia Sophia" translates to holy wisdom. The building was constructed as Christian patriarchal basilica, later it was used as an imperial mosque, and today it is a museum. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architectural style.
