Roman Mosaics


This is my Roman mosaic I made at school. I made it out of diffrent coloured card.  After cutting the card into lots of tiny squares I then had to copy by hand a picture of a real Roman mosaic.  This made it easier to re-create the mosaic with the little bits of paper.




I chose similiar colours to the real one.  It took me about 3 or 4 half days to do it and its massive.

This is my second mosaic and I designed it myself.  I also chose the colours.




This mosaic is smaller than the first one and I was able to laminate it to protect it which is why the picture is real bright. I couldn't stop the glare from the camera flash.

I hope you like it, thankyou for stopping by.
