The term “mosaic“ is derived from the Greek word “musa“ which refers to the mythological patron goddesses of science and the arts. In Latin, the term “museum“ means “temple of the muses“, devoted to the arts. A mosaic is a piece of art work made of randomly cut or fragmented tiles. This art of closely inlaying broken tiles was developed as early as 4,000 B.C. and serves both decorative purposes and the illustration of humans and animals. It is a splendid means of artistic expression; wonderful art works may be created by using either simple materials such as glazed and unglazed ceramics, chinaware, seashells, mirrors, and stained glass or extravagant materials such as crystal glass, marble, tiffany glass and smalts. Mosaic has been fascinating ever since. Owing to its versatility, it can be adapted to a multitude of needs.
Fascinating, artistic, unique and functional – all this is mosaic.
