The history of Mosaic
When it comes to mosaics, people will not be unfamiliar. As early as the early 1980s, many families laid materials on the walls and floors of bathrooms.

Only authoritative rulers and wealthy wealthy people can afford artisans to buy materials to express this extravagant art. In the development of the late Greek mosaic, in order to enrich the work more diversely, the artists began to need smaller pieces of stone and cut small stones to complete a mosaic.
In the Roman period, mosaics have developed very popular. The floors and walls of ordinary houses and public buildings are decorated with it. This makes the Rome look so rich at that time, making the ancient Roman architecture unbelievable.

Since most people are illiterate, there are glass mosaic murals on the walls of these basements that describe the story of Jesus Christ. The Emperor Constantine was the Roman emperor who legalized and publicized Christianity. The church in Constantinople (Byzantine) was decorated with a large number of mosaics. The colors used were more and more, and the gold foil was also burned. Used in transparent glass. The Sicilian mosaic is characterized by a golden base. It can be said that the Byzantine period is almost equal to the word mosaic.
