Mosaic - Works of art made up of numerous tiny pieces of stone or
glass, held together by cement. Mosaics were and still are used to
decorate indoor walls and floors and outdoor walkways. The word
mosaic is derived from the Latin Word
Mosaicum and the Greek word
Mouseion which mean "of the muses" or "work of the muses". This
work was given this name because mosaics were often dedicated to the
muses.
