“Monumental representations of Nubian authorities are one of the most characteristic features of Nubian art. This tradition has been also continued in Medieval Nubia and portrait representations of most important figures for the kingdom of Makuria became part of the iconographical programme in Nubian churches. This presentation will be an overview of monuments where such representations are preserved. Also places in the sacral interiors where these portraits were located will be discussed, as well as character of these representations. The state of research on this topic will be presented, as well as the analysis that initiated a new project developed at the University of Warsaw.“
