Textured marble floor @ Hagia Sophia

Hagia Sophia, the Church of Holy Wisdom, or Ayasofia Museum, was rebuilt in 537 AD under the supervision of Emperor Justinian I. The dome as we see it today was rebuilt in 989 by the architect Tirdat. This floor, which was what originally captured my attention is marble.
