A description of Hagia Sophia: Hagia Sophia: The theme of the “shepherd” is one of the most emblematic in ancient Christian art, & the statuette in the Pius-Christian Museum, an eighteenth century reworking of a fragment from a sarcophagus, is undoubtedly one of its most famous & evocative representations. The “kriophoros” shepherd, holding a ram or a lamb on his shoulders, is an icon rooted in classical art, as a representation of one of the serving faithful & later as an allegory of “philanthropy”. The image was adopted in funerary art, among the characters of bucolic scenes alluding to otherworldly bliss, & was finally inherited by Christians, in relation to the figure of Christ, the “Good Shepherd” (Jn 10, 11) & the parable of the lost sheep (Mt 18, 12-14; Lk 15, 4-7). The statuette in the Pius-Christian Museum, with its splendid face recalling Apollo & typical of the most ancient iconography of Christ, is without doubt evidence of the latter semantic evolution.
