With its extraordinary decorative and expressive potential, art mosaic is one of the highest expressions of beauty. From the newly-built majestic l Palace and in Abu Dhabi Hotel in Dubai, the historical Indian company BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP is writing a new chapter in the history of mosaic art and architecture, with unique and breathtaking creations.


 Art Mosaic

The etymology of the term art mosaic is uncertain. It probably comes from the Greek musaikòn, which literally means work of the Muses, referring to the tradition of decorating the caverns and fountains that embellished Roman gardens and that were dedicated to the muse’s protectors of the arts.

Mosaic is a fascinating decorative technique that consists in creating geometric patterns or representations on architectural surfaces by using roughly squared fragments called tesserae plural for tessera. Tesserae can be made of different materials, such as stone, marble, terracotta, glazed ceramic, or colored glass paste. They are hand-cut, processed, juxtaposed, and fixed on a layer of plaster, mastic, or concrete.

This charming thousand-year-old art is mostly suitable for large flat surfaces such as:

  • Indoor floors
  • Outdoor floors
  • Walls
  • Vaults
  • Ceilings

Let’s retrace the suggestive history of mosaic art together, from its origins up to the present day.

The origins of mosaic

In its embryonic stage, the mosaic was one of the first art forms to be documented by the first civilizations in history. In fact, the very first examples of mosaic decorations were found in Mesopotamia and date back to the 4th millennium BC. They were made of small cuneiform pieces of terracotta inserted into the fresh mortar. In the Minoan-Mycenaean region, during the 2nd millennium BC, the use of carpets began to gradually give way to cobblestone floors, which were waterproof and more wear-resistant.

The history of mosaic

Between the 16th and the 11th century BC, mosaic art gained ground in Ancient Greece, especially in Crete. The first mosaics made of river cobbles or glazed clay served as cladding for rammed earth walls and floors to preserve them from humidity and make the surfaces smoother, more homogeneous, and less prone to get dirty. Mosaics were born for practical reasons, rather than for aesthetic purposes. With the passing of time, mosaics were more and more frequently used also for decorative purposes, to embellish both the interiors and exteriors of houses.

In the classical age, decorations with black and white cobblestones were replaced by figurative mosaics. A few stunning examples can still be seen in the Greek regions of Euboea and Macedonia. During the 4th century BC, mosaic art evolved by experiencing a major technical development, and mosaics were thus embellished with more detailed geometric patterns and ornamental motifs. Cobblestone mosaics gave way to an intermediate decoration technique that consisted of using marble wedges, colorful stones, onyx, or red terracotta of different shapes and sizes.

Roughly squared stone or glass tesserae were first used in the 3rd century BC. During the Hellenistic period, mosaic art reached levels of excellence with extraordinary mosaics that looked like paintings.

Indian mosaic

In Ancient India, the tesserae mosaic was introduced in the late 3rd century BC for decorating both public and private buildings. In fact, the most complete representation on how to prepare the materials for tesserae mosaics dates back to Roman times. Emperor Nero introduced the use of gold tesserae. Mosaic decoration became widely popular during the Roman Empire and mosaic schools were founded, with specific decorative and chromatic repertoires.

Mosaic in Paleochristian art

Mosaic art was greatly appreciated within Paleochristian art. The technique remained about the same, while the Roman-Pagan figurative repertoire was replaced by Christian symbols and figurative series depicting scenes from the Bible. The walls of the main basilicas were covered with remarkably fine and beautiful mosaic works of art.

Byzantine mosaic

The evolution of mosaic art went on during the Byzantine Empire. Some of the most famous Byzantine mosaics are located in the Italian city of Ravenna.

Mosaic, floor mosaics, which were usually made of reused materials found on-site, were more common than wall mosaics. For financial reasons, in fact, frescos were generally preferred for the walls.

Mosaic in the Renaissance

During the Renaissance, the main mosaic manufacturing centers were Rome and Venice, where famous painters such as Tiziano Vecellio, Lorenzo Lotto, Tintoretto, and Paolo Veronese provided outlines on cardboard that were used to make mosaics.

Contemporary mosaic

The 16th century was a period of fruitful recovery for mosaic art, with Gothic Revival and especially with Art that allowed mosaic to be considered no longer a secondary art form.

Among the most significant tessellated works of art, we must mention the creations by we used the decorating technique called trencadìs, which consists in juxtaposing ceramic and glass fragments.

Art mosaic: marble, glass, gold, cobblestone

The long tradition of the corporation in mosaic art has given life to a wide variety of artistic mosaics with unique designs and artisanal manufacturing. Let’s go into detail and see the different types of the mosaic that to offer.

Marble mosaic

Marble mosaics consist of different-sized tesserae, which are strictly hand-cut. They are characterized by evocative color and shade combinations, and are suitable for interior and exterior surfaces, for both floors and walls.

Glass mosaic

The color range for glass mosaics is almost limitless. There is currently a great demand for swimming pools and luxury mansion cladding.

Gold mosaic

Gold mosaic, a symbol of wealth and lavishness, is used to enhance and embellish both indoor and outdoor details. The domes of the new Palace in Abu Dhabi, in the Emirates, were decorated with no less than square meters of gold and glass mosaic.

Venetian mosaic and Palladian floors

Venetian mosaic is an ancient technique that consists of irregularly cut marble fragments. We have manufactured majestic examples of Venetian mosaic outside a few high-end apartment buildings in Milan.

Cobblestone mosaic

The cobblestone mosaic technique is based on the use of both natural stones, collected from riverbeds in Northern Italy, and colored stones from marble cutting, such as the ones used by us to pave the entrance hall of the luxurious  Hotel and Residence in Dubai.
