Mosaics

In West Asia Minor ( Greek Area) at the city of Gordio of Frigia, they found the most ancient samples of floors made of pieces of rubble. Later on, during the first centuries A.C. they found floors with complex drawings made with white or black natural pebbles in Olinthos (Kassandra area in Greece) inspired mainly by ancient myths.

Mosaics have been spread from Greek Asia Minor to Italy and it was developed there, especially in Pompeii and Rome. Romans decorated floors and walls of houses , temples and baths, following a simple and ‘monochrome’ technique.

During the Byzantine Era, the art of mosaics reaches its highest level of quality. Except floors and walls, artists decorate vaults and facades of temples and palaces. They use pieces of marble, natural stones, colored glass, even gold and silver.
