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

1,500 Year Old Mosaic discovered At Kibbutz Bet Qama
A spectacular colorful mosaic dating to the Byzantine period (4th–6th centuries CE) was exposed in recent weeks in the fields of Kibbutz Bet Qama, in the B’nei Shimon regional council.
The mosaic was discovered within the framework of an archaeological excavation the Israel Antiquities Authority is carrying out prior to the construction of an interchange between Ma’ahaz and Devira Junction, undertaken and funded by the Cross-Israel Highway Company.
Remains of a settlement that extends across more than six dunams were uncovered in the excavation being conducted on the kibbutz’s farmland and directed by Dr. Rina Avner of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Basilica of San Vitale - Ravenna (Italy)
The Church of San Vitale, the masterpiece of Byzantine art in Ravenna. Construction began in 526 by Bishop Ecclesius under the Ostrogothic queen Amalasuntha (d. 535) and was consecrated in 547 during the reign of the emperor Justinian. This octagonal church, built of marble and capped by a lofty terra-cotta dome, is one of the most important surviving examples of Byzantine architecture and mosaic work.
