the Berliner Dom: Niche with Mosaic of St. Matthew the Evangelist

Niche with Mosaic of St. Matthew the Evangelist

Cupola of a side niche with a mosaic of St. Matthew the Evangelist. Berliner Dom, Berlin, Germany. Dubbed the "Protestant St. Peter's,", the impressive Baroque structure dates only from 1905, but stands on the site of several earlier structures. It suffered bomb damage in World War II and did not reopen until 1993.
