Mosiac Tiles

We were lucky enough to be in Siena when they unveil the marble floors in the Duomo. Most of the year they are covered to protect the intricate mosaic work, but for a short time in the year, they open the floors to the public. The art work is amazing to see, intricate pieces fitting together and beautifully carved out figures in marble throughout. It’s one thing to have the ceiling and the walls around you adorned with amazing carvings, inlaid paintings, and statues and busts all around, it’s another to look down at your feet and be blown away as well. Unfortunately you could not have a flash nor a tripod so a lot of my pictures turned out blurry.
