Roger II created the palace chapel in Palermo, consecrated at 1140. Classical basilica, with domed area, an apse and two side areas, based on Byzantine central plan, walls covered with mosaics. Byzantine style of mosaics. Flat style, lack of depth. Always have centered dome. Christ Pantokrator (pantokrator means the ruler of heaven, universe) in Daphni. A byzantine tradition, the pantokrator is on the dome and his face looks scary and angered. In the palace, the Christ Pantokrator is placed in the apse (rather than in the dome) visually the center becomes in the apse and not in the dome, Roger playing with these old traditions. Christ expression is different than the one in Daphni. Islamic tradition of architecture, elements that are typical of Islamic art.
