Yes it is, thank you. It is a fresco from the St. Sophia in Kiev, the depiction of St. Natalia.

Beautiful pictures and links.

I would imagine if a movie maker were to make a movie which required conveying a sense of the Christian interiors for the Great Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, he or she would shoot most scenes in St. Sophia's in Kiev, others in St. Mark's in Venice, some in Ravenna and perhaps some in the Hagia Sophia. The editing would have to be clever though as in the Christian era, there was not an iconostas as we know it in Hagia Sophia...

I nearly cried cry when I saw this fresco in the St Sophia Cathedral:
http://www.icon-art.info/masterpiece.php?lng=en&mst_id=1047

It is the best photo image capture of this I have seen...
Anna Yaroslavna (who is said to be the youngest depicted on this fresco), Queen of France and wife of King Henri I of France is my 29th great-grand-mother.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful site! smile
