Source the original file is at "File:Apse mosaic of the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.jpg". NOTE: The intensity of colour has been lowered in the present image, in keeping with the normal appearance of old mosaics, and because the original appeared to have had its colour "enhanced" (ie. over-strengthened.) Lowering the intensity makes subtle variations of colour, tone and detail apparent.
