  • Small pieces, normally roughly cubic, of stone or glass of different colors, known as tesserae, (diminutive tessellae), are used to create a pattern or picture.
  • The earliest known examples of mosaics made of different materials were found at a temple building in Ubaid, Mesopotamia, and are dated to the second half of 3rd millennium BC. They consist of pieces of colored stones, shells and ivory.

MOSAIC EXAMPLES

In the 5th and 6th centuries, the famous Beth-Alpha mosaic proudly adorned the floor of a large synagogue in Galilee. With its representations of the sacrifice of Isaac (upper left panel), the cosmic structure of the universe (circular center), and the ark of the covenant (upper right), the mosaic reflects the artist\'s conception of the universe, achieved by asserting the Jewish language and symbols into a Bysantine world.
