Mosaic is the unique art of creating images and patterns by assembling small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. Its origins date back to the 3rd millennium BCE in Mesopotamia, where the first mosaics were found, made from fragments of colored stones, shells, and ivory. Traditional subjects for mosaics were mythological scenes or images inspired by daily life, utilizing this art as an early form of storytelling. The art of mosaic then started spreading around the world from Italian churches, adorned with ethereal glassworks, to Islamic architecture, featuring geometric shapes and vivid colors, and to Spain in artworks by Antoni Gaudì, such as the famous Park Guell. The park features long, winding rows of tile-covered benches and a mosaic dragon greeting visitors at the bottom of the steps.
This elaborate art form has endured through the ages thanks to the remarkable efforts of master artisans who, to this day, continue to invest their expertise in designing mesmerizing compositions of precious and colorful tiles, known as "tessere" in Italian.
