National Historical Museum, Tirana, Albania

The Mosaic

This mosaic, titled 'The Albanians' is on the front of the National Museum. From far away it doesn't look like a mosaic. When I saw it, I thought it was a painting but as I came closer I saw the tiny mosaic pieces and I just stared at it. Could you imagine the amount of work that went into that whole piece? It represents all of Albania's history , different era's in it's history.

I just found it interesting because when I saw it, I realised that the art of mosaic is kind of dying. You don't really see it anymore! What do you think? Do you know any current Mosaic artists? Or are you a mosaic artist?
