Artist's description:

In this mosaic I wanted to show one different approach to the typical materials for mosaics. The tesserae are made of bronze letters in Glagolitic alphabet. The Glagolic is the oldest known Slavic alphabet. It was founded by Constantine-Cyril around 862 to863 for the translation of liturgical books from Greek into Slavic languages (particularly Old, also called Old Slavic language or Old Church Slavonic).It Is known for their complex and exotic graphics. The name was not coined until many centuries after its creation, and comes from the Old Slavic. The verb Glagoliti means "to speak". Most of the letters have also numerical meaning, like the Greek letters used in science as mathematical symbols and names of stars.

Materials used:

Canvas, wood, cardboard, acrilic colour, bronze
