Romanesque artistic time period

The style known as "Romanesque" can be used to cover all derivations of Roman architecture in the West, from the fall of Rome (450 CE) until the advent of the Gothic style around 1150. Between Romanesque and antique art there is an interval of many centuries, during which the Northern tribes made their way of what Jesus looks like. Characteristics of Romanesque art are reflected in the rise in political and economic stability across Europe. With all the paintings and art that was made to their vision of Jesus came stability, higher tax and tithe revenues for the Church, which therefore had more money to spend on new churches - complete with stained glass art, stone statues of Saints, fresco paintings, illuminated manuscripts and the like - which in turn attracted larger congregations and bigger collections. In the Romanesque period there were more than just one style of art that they could do to make an image Jesus there were: painters, sculptures, illuminators, Goldsmith and metal workers at the time where everyone was making their own interpretation of Jesus. A sculpture "Benedetto Antelami" a Gold smith metal worker "Hugo of Oignies", painter "Berlinghiero Berlinghieri" and a manuscript illuminator "Ende". Those are most of the artists in the period that were making images of Jesus during the time and most of the artists have originated in Europe, Italy or Spain. During the Romanesque period, sculpturing, metal work and Gold smith were one of the artistic influences of the time, famous and most used other than the rest of the artistic styles. People adored the sculptures and the gold work because people thought of Jesus as the "holy one" a person who is of pure of heart and son of God, so everyone thought of him highly as brighter than gold which made metal work, goldsmith and sculpturing the most popular of the Romanesque period especially, sculptures and metal work that was used to be built in churches including illuminators famous for building designs in churches portraying Jesus.
