Geometric motifs from Roman mosaics

Posted on


Geometric motifs from Roman mosaics. It fascinates me just how many different combinations they used. You see individual ones that are then expanded upon to create patterns to cover a complete floor as well. They can be grouped together or used in isolation. 
The main thing that I have learnt from this work is to be able to separate the pattern from the underlying geometry. You don't even need to understand the geometry to create the pattern as a mosaic, you just need to be able to see the flow of the pattern.
