A glass mosaic from the Corning Museum of Glassoriginal photo above and one with different effects to enhance the mosaic bits (the tiny, tiny mosaic tiles!)
This is a small detail of the micromosaic of the Basilica of San Marco. The whole thing actually measures five by seven feet. It is dated from 1907 and created by E. Cerato.
I do have to say that I like the enhanced photo best. Are you sure it doesn't look that in real life? It ought to.
Nora: I think it was more muted, like the first one.
What an marvelous mosaic and a great post for the M Day! Love the colors! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!
Beautiful mosaic!!! The Celebrity cruise line ship, the Equinox, featured a glass blowing exhibition on the top deck...it was fascinating, and all the proceeds of the sales went to the Corning Museum of Glass...
Oh are these cool!
My, I haven't been to Corning in decades; may be worth another trip!

Impressive, to be sure. It must have taken a long time to create this but it's lovely!
How very beautifully, - it stretches the mind when one thinks of the work involved in creating such a gorgeous mosaic.
Beautiful ART! I'm enchanted by this mosaic, thanks so much for sharing!
I will search to read more about this artist E. Cerato.

Wow! Amazing craftsmanship. And patience and persistance. What steady, and slender fingers, the artist had.
Absolutely gorgeous! I love mosaics. I've always wanted to try to create one, but I'm afraid I just don't have the patience. What a wonderful post for "M" day!
Thanks for visiting my blog

The detailed artwork is quite amazing! Thanks so much.
I find mosaics fascinating, this is a beauty. The recreation of the paintings at such a small scale is amazing.
The details in the mosaic are amazing a beautiful piece of art. In answer to your question on my blog, no I did not go on the ferris wheel - too high for me!
