Mosaic is an art form that involves fitting small pieces of rock, shell, tile, or glass called tesserae together to create a pattern that may be abstract or representational. Some of the finest examples can be found in ancient art from the Greco-Roman world, and in Byzantine churches. This craft can be used to decorate everything from chests of drawers to floors, and it has been a part of the artistic expression of many cultures all over the world.
The earliest known mosaics date to around the eighth century BCE, when the Greeks made designs with pebbles. The art form spread to the Romans as well, and it was used extensively in the internal decoration of homes and businesses. The Romans were especially fond of using this art for flooring, and some truly incredible floor mosaics have been revealed at archaeological sites. With the spread of Christianity came an explosion of this art in churches and other houses of worship; they depicted saints or religious scenes, and often integrated precious materials such as gold and gems.
Some Native American cultures, especially in Latin America, also developed mosaic, which was used to ornament shields and body armor. Latin American desgins used stones, such as turquoise, and precious metals, and immense technical skill was involved. The oldest pre-Columbian examples appear to date to around 600 BCE, although older ones may still be discovered.
