“The Book of Wisdom”, 2019, 6″ x 6″, smalti
“This work is a fragment of a Byzantine icon, representing a Christian saint who is holding the Bible. The image portrays the hand of the saint who gently holds the Book. The wrinkles of the festive clothes frame the image creating a sense of festivity, honor and at the same time timelessness, since this particular scene can be witnessed today as well as in the old times.
The Byzantine theme is my favorite when it comes to the mosaic art. It has been a joy to work on this piece and I am delighted to have an opportunity to display it in The 100 Moments in Mosaic exhibition. “
