Rooster on the ceiling of Aachen cathedral. Charlemagne took inspiration from San Vitale in Ravenne when building Aachen Cathedral - back then only the Royal Chapel of Mary. The mosaics inside the church were only added in the late 19th, early 20th century and were clearly inspired by the Byzantine mosaics in the early Christian churches and monuments in Ravenna in Italy near Venice. The themes, colors, and patterns were clearly inspired by the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.
