glass, smalti, and pebbles

How Christian mosaics began and where they're at today...Here is a sample of glass mosaic from a village at the foot of Mt Olympus, a modern smalti mosaic mural found outside a church in Kavala, and some lovely early Christian pebble mosaics from Philippi. Lucky dog that gets to wander through the fence and lay on that gorgeous ancient floor.
