10 interesting facts about mosaic

Mosaic is considered one of the oldest forms of art, where several cultures are contained. Much information about the cultures of ancient countries was found in mosaics.

Small pieces of glass in mosaics were first used by the Egyptians during the New Kingdom (CA. 1550 to 1069 BC). Very small pieces of dull-colored glass were used to make jewelry, wall mosaics, and mosaic stones. Stones were added to the wall along with pieces of rock and inlays, usually very often used in funerary art.

In Ancient Rome and Greece, mosaics were performed in several stages. The ground was compacted, leveled. Then, it laid out dry pebbles, stone, and lime up to 25 cm thick. Then, another layer was laid out, up to 15 cm thick. This layer consisted of broken bricks and lime. On this layer:

• a drawing was performed.
• colored glass, cubes, or pebbles were laid out on it.
• next, the mosaic was filled with a liquid solution consisting of cement and sand.
• as soon as everything solidified, the entire surface was sanded.

The most complex of all mosaics is the Florentine mosaics. It is named so because the masters of Florence were the first to use natural stone drawing to get ready-made paintings. By the end of the XVI century, a special technique of mosaic was developed, which has not undergone almost any changes in its history. In a way, it resembles Gclub24HR, where there are also modifications of roulette, card, and table games. These activities are as close as possible in terms of external visualization and form to the real entertainment of land-based clubs.

There are many legends about the appearance of the mosaic
Here is one of them from China. It is believed that ceramic mosaic originates from the time of the appearance of pottery. In Ancient China, there was even a legend about the appearance of mosaics. It says that once a novice Potter worked in one of the country's workshops.

Taking a glazed bowl of incredible beauty from the oven, the artisan was struck by its unprecedented attractiveness, looked at it, and let it go at that. The bowl shattered, and thousands of fragments flew around. According to the laws of Ancient China, the student was supposed to be severely punished for the destroyed work. So he decided to collect all the pieces and go into the woods.

At the same time, I brought some icing with me. In the forest, the student had an Epiphany. He figured out how to avoid punishment. He sawed out the wood base for the mosaic canvas and soon laid out his masterpiece of broken crockery on it. When he returned to the workshop, he met the master, who was angry at the loss of the cup. However, he did not dare to think about the punishment of the student when he saw the beautiful mosaic canvas made by him. This legend tells this is how the first ceramic mosaic was created, which later found distribution in Ancient China and around the world.
