Mosaic originally means: mosaic, mosaic pattern, mosaic process. It originated in ancient Greece. The marble mosaics of the early Greeks were most often matched with black and white. Only authoritative rulers and rich people can afford craftsmen and materials to express this luxurious art. In the late Greek mosaics, artists began to need smaller fragments and cut small stones to complete a mosaic in order to diversify their works.
By the time of Rome, mosaics had developed very widely. The floors and walls of common houses and public buildings were decorated with mosaics, which made Rome look so rich at that time and made ancient Rome's architecture incredibly luxurious.
The golden age of mosaics originated from the arrival of early Christians in Rome, who were persecuted and could only meet in basement and other passages. Since most of the people are illiterate, glass mosaic murals describing the story of Jesus Christ are on the walls of these basements.
Constantine the Great was the Roman emperor who legalized Christianity and vigorously promoted it. The churches in Constantinople (Byzantium) were decorated and beautified with a large number of mosaics. More and more colors were used, and gold foil was burned in transparent glass. The characteristic of Sicilian mosaic is the golden bottom. This Byzantine period almost equals the word mosaic.
