Black and white mosaic lines

Posted on


Black and white bath house mosaic from the Baths of Caracalla in Rome. When ever you get the chance to, look closely at these and notice the way they set the direction of the lines of black tesserae. They follow the lines of the musculature rather than just filling in. Although it's something that is not noticeable from a distance it's something that you need to be able to do automatically.
