Why mosaic? A question we are frequently asked when our answer to which wall décor art we prefer – and recommend - is mosaic. Although wall décor comes in many forms like fresco painting, frames, stickers, and design accessorizes, for us, nothing really compares to mosaic, and here’s why. Mosaic is more than just a decorative tool; we rather see it as an art. Just like architecture, it is the process of designing and building a vision based on inspiration, ideals, perspective, geometry, and material. And just like there is no limit to any art, there is no limit to what we can achieve with mosaic. For your indoor murals, mosaic offers you endless choices in material, colors, and style of art that no other wall décor can match in beauty. With stone, marble, or glass, mosaics can reproduce not only any image desired, but also any visual effect. From pure abstract, to depth, illusion, landscape, or perspective, mosaic can do it all, guaranteeing the wow effect you’re looking for. With the wide variety of colors available and the many techniques and beautiful marriages of materials, mosaic murals can take wall décor to new heights. Image a beautiful union of marble and granite, cement and sea shells, colored glass and marbled sand… the sky is the limit with what could result from the combinations of colors and material in mosaic making. The reasons why we’re passionate about mosaic are many and we’d love to share them with you.

The world’s biggest mosaic museum is located in Gaziantep, Turkey, and has been open to the public since September 2011. Built in homage to Zeugma, one of the four major cities of the Kingdom of Commagene, the Zeugma Museum is home to the archaeological legacy of the ancient town, sheltering some of the world’s most precious mosaics. With execution costs estimated at 30 million dollars, the largest museum of its kind comprises 550 square meters of mosaics reflecting the history of the ancient city of Zeugma founded by Alexander the Great in 300 BC on the banks of the river of Euphrates. The mosaics stretch over thousands of square meters including the historical pieces and remains of Zeugma found during the excavations. What’s impressive about this museum is that it harmoniously brings together history with modernity in the way it restores and exhibits the mosaics. Using laser system and unique lighting effects, the museum resorts to advanced technology to recreate missing parts of mosaics or add beautiful optical effects through interactive mosaic panels, virtual reality systems, and three-dimensional shows that make visitors’ experience a mystical journey through time. In addition to many mosaic pieces, mosaic murals, mosaic fountains, and other valuable items, the museum is home to the world-famous “Gipsy Girl” mosaic known for her striking wild look, and whom scholars suggest to be Gaea, the goddess of the Earth.
