Waiting for the summer

I came across these wonderful pebble mosaics on the internet. A perfect blend of tradition and originality. I also like the stone slabs that surround the two mosaic panels. Truly lovely.

  1. My very first mosaic was the Delos dolphin in the house of the trident! It is 1 m^2.

    Delos was a fantastic place to visit.
