Symbols to guide your practice
Geometric mosaics are one of the oldest art forms used to decorate houses and temples with intricate designs originating in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium bc. They hold to their core, the concept of tessellation, filling a plane with geometrical shapes that allow no gaps or overlaps. They have given rise to games of recreational mathematics and jigsaws, and their geometry has traditionally been a conversation starter for philosophers. We find that mosaics remind us a lot of our world, although each piece is different in shape, color, material and size they all come together and create one single piece of art. Mosaics awaken our ability to adapt, to tolerate, to become one and connect with everyone and everything around us. They remind us that no matter our apparent differences we are all one.
