What makes a mosaic? | Blog

A modern twist on a centuries-old art style, Maros Mosaic mosaics are made from thousands of solid wood pieces, forming a spectacular three-dimensional (3D) image that you can personalize with a click of a button. Whether you are looking to add a statement piece of art to the centre of a living or working space, or gift truly unique artwork, our mosaics are sure to leave a lasting impression. 

A mosaic, considered any artwork or image created from the arrangement of smaller pieces of material - such as stone or glass - is an art form dating back as far as the third millennium BC. These individual pieces of material are known as tesserae. While unremarkable on their own, tesserae form stunning visuals once pieced together in sequence. A popular art form in ancient Greek and Roman architecture, mosaics adorned the interiors of important structures such as basilicas. The art form is still used extensively in professional arts and crafts in present times, including classic wall art.

At Maros Mosaic, we create mosaic wall art that simply won’t be found anywhere else in the world. Created from thousands of stained solid wood tesserae, our mosaics give off earthy, natural tones that will provide any space with a sense of warmth and comfort. Measuring only a few millimetres wide, each tessera is handpicked and positioned as the image comes to life. A standard wall mosaic, measuring 2x3 feet, consists of over 20,000 individual tesserae! A border is applied to the mosaic image, showcasing the stunning visual from all viewing angles.

Maros Mosaic artwork begins from a single photo. Our greatest strength is our ability to bring any meaningful digital image to life; the end result something to marvel over. Consisting of several different variations of tesserae, each is uniquely stained to provide various shading that forms a resulting visual. Maros Mosaic will optimize any digital image provided for transformation into mosaic form, leaving you with artwork that you can uniquely call your own.
