    How to depict the face of God? Moses on Mt Sinai received the commandment prohibiting the making of any image or likeness of anything in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth. Yet in the days of early Christian & Byzantine art to conceptualise the spirit, the transcendental led to, perhaps, my favourite period in art. What do we see when we look above, inside and beyond? This book explores that journey, beautifully.
