Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

During the reign of the Roman Empire, many of the town houses and rural estates in North Africa were decorated with beautiful and elaborate mosaics. These often stunning works were especially widespread in what is now modern-day Tunisia. This stunning volume is structured around four principal themes - Nature, Theatre and Spectacle, Gods and Myths, and Technique - and features 27 mosaics from Tunisia's leading museums. "Stories in Stone" also contains nine richly illustrated essays that illuminate the history of mosaic art, the development of the principal themes, and the conservation of mosaic art both in museums and in situ.
