This past week I was at a building in AZ and noticed the fantastic mosaics that had been installed on the walls into the entrance of the building. I thought about how mosaics are such a lost art form and how beautiful they can be.
Then I remembered this mosaic that is in the Vatican. Each stone couldn't have been larger than 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch. And even smaller in some of the fine detail areas of the piece. Always loving peacocks, I loved how they were included in such detail. (My mosaics made out of paper squares in third grade art class were generally discernible blobs on color on paper.)
I think that is why this art on the floor stopped me in my tracks.
