Het moet zwaar werk geweest zijn om zo’n mooie kleurrijke mozaïekvloer te maken. De zin Arduis saepe, metu nunquam betekent ‘Vaak in moeilijkheden, nooit in angst’. (142/365) #hastings
Must have been hard work to achieve this beautiful coloured mosaic floor. The sentence Arduis saepe, metu nunquam means Often in difficulties, never in fear. (142/365)

Nog iets wat quasi verdwenen is: mozaïek aan de ingang van een winkel. Hoeveel klanten zouden er al over deze steentjes gewandeld zijn? (4/365) #gent
Another thing you don’t see often  nowadays: mosaic at the entrance of a shop. How many customers did already walk over those little stones? (4/365)

Deze mozaïekvloer is maar een paar stappen verwijderd van de andere die ik een week geleden postte. Deze heeft nog meer geleden onder de voetstappen, gelukkig zijn de meeste letters nog zichtbaar. (15/365) #gent
This mosaic floor is just a few steps away from the other floor I posted one week ago. This one has even suffered more from footsteps, fortunately most of the letters are still visible. (15/365) #gent
