    I love mosaics, but isn’t it funny how I’m always more captivated by fragments? Thank you for posting!

  4. So lovely. But when I see fragments of wonderful tile work, I always think, “I’ll bet there was more than one person working on this!” I love doing mosaic work but it is so labor intensive. I need an assistant or two before I do any more. Will add this museum to my list of places to visit. Thanks.

    • Thanks Terri. It is impressive that you can do mosaics! I love them. The museum was on the top floor of the Basilica San Marco, which is completely covered in mostly gold mosaics. Enjoy 🙂
