Italian mosaic – only seeing is believing

Hand made mosaic art epitomises Italy in much the same way as carpets from Turkey, flamenco dancing from Spain, windmills from Holland and rain from England! When you say the word Italy, it is synonymous with the word art. The skilled techniques date back to the 17th Century and as well as creating landscapes, animals, and flowers, there are incredible copies of famous works of art. The Delphic Sibyl by Michelangelo is just one of the abundant collection that have to offer. This Delphic Sibyl is the one that Michelangelo chose to portray as a fresco on the magnificent ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican in Rome. This particular mosaic is made from tiny pieces of Murano glass tiles from Venice and is truly spectacular. Making a visit to the Vatican in Rome is definitely a life changing experience, but the visit has to end. Having an incredible hand made mosaic to gaze at every day of your life, will continually  touch your very soul.
