What is Mosaic Art?

Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of marble, stone, or other materials. It may be a technique of decorative art, an aspect of interior decoration, or of cultural and spiritual significance.

Small pieces, regular and irregular, made of  stone and marble of different colors, known as tesserae, are used to create a pattern or picture. They are applied to a surface, frequently a wall or floor, which has been prepared with mortar or adhesive to receive the design.

Like each decorative medium, mosaic has qualities unique to itself, which lends it particular suitability to certain decorative functions.
