Christ Pantocrator

This dome mosaic was created for a private chapel. Because it was to be seen close up, we used smaller than usual tesserae, around 5mm (1/4”) square. Each artistic medium has its unique characteristics, and at Aidan Hart Mosaics we make the most of the medium’s features. We set the rows of tesserae(called andamenta) to move rhythmically, and angle each one to gain the maximum dance of light.
