Four Rivers Mosaic

This 11th century mosaic is a fine example of classical art which represents the universe as seen by our medieval forebears. It was used as altar carpet in the St Nicolas Chapel (the bishop's private chapel) and also features medieval fresco and early 18th century painted wall paper.

From the Pole Star, the four great rivers of the earthly Paradise flow out from somewhat human-looking bulls' heads to irrigate the four points of the compass.
