One of the most significant differences in the sources was how in the 8th-century, art was painted on stone and had minimal color and details. It was not as preserved as such raw materials, and pieces faded or cracked later. The paintings are not as detailed, such as the people in the painting do not have faces, and even the horse does not look as detailed as you would expect. They did a good job making sure that they used every bit of space available to show their work.
While in the 14th-century, the art looked like it was painted on a canvas or a cloth of some sort and had significantly more details and colors. In this piece of art, the artist took the time to put faces on the knights, but even the horses have so much detail. He took the time to make their mane look natural, and they used so many different colors, even the horse’s and knight’s clothing show how much time they took to make sure that everything looked just like you see it at a jousting competition. 1 Corthinians talk about how we should do everything to the glory of God, and I think both periods tried their best with what they knew and the materials available to them at that time. In the 8th century, they knew that they needed to preserve their art so generations to come to see where they started and could use it as a learning tool of their history, while in the 14th century, they did it more for entertainment. We can look at both pieces and see that they took their time to ensure that it was the best work they put out there. We need to remember always to put our best work out to the world.

EARLY GREECE In the illustration from Homilies on the Virgin, Byzantine manuscript, 12th century. Illuminated manuscripts such as this one, showing a biblical series, were often made by Byzantine monks for monastery libraries or wealth patrons. Events of Jesus and the life of his mother were depicted in this type of works. In this particular painting we see the resurrection of Jesus while the angels surround him, and his mother Mary looks on. David is to the right wearing a crown and the prophet Isaiah is to the left.
STELE, VIKING CULTURE An eight century Viking stele, with depictions of the Norse god Odin riding Sleipnir, his eight-legged horse, and Valkyries guarding the gates of Valhalla. Viking artwork could be found on useful everyday objects, depicted their daily lives, and represented their beliefs about the world. Viking culture was a Pagan belief system which held beliefs in mythology and the Gods such as Odin and Thor. Their artwork can be found to use symbolism and objects which are decorated with elaborate abstract designs including, animals, humans, and patterns. The use of Norse knotwork which is an intertwining of shapes or spiral like motifs. Most of the Viking’s artwork was carved into wood which was an important occupation and skill for them to have. Eventually the Vikings would adopt into Christianity.
Both of these pieces of artwork depict their belief system during their times. The Homilies of the Virgin uses paint and gold filigree to create this artwork. Monks were the main painters and only the wealthy were able to obtain it. Where the Vikings used more materials of the earth such as wood, steel, and iron. Vikings all were skilled in this form of depiction not just for artwork but also a multitude of multifunctional tools which would come in handy when they would forge their ships or make weapons used to protect or hunt.
1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Both are using Gods in their artwork just in different forms.
