mosaic from the vatican collection

i love mosaics. i inherited this from my mother. my father always says my mother would turn our house into a church, if she could, from all the mosaics and artwork she has collected in her 51 years. this piece really stood out to me. i don’t know whether it’s the sharpness in the edges of the color variances or simply the metallic hair, i just like it. i adore all the geometric shapes in this mosaic. i feel the artist really portrayed something by only making the Blessed Mother’s hair, shoulder, and hand soft, and everything else sharp. such thoughtfulness.
