Chevron pattern then and now

mosaic from Damascus

chevron mug
Look at this pattern.

The pattern is the same (and rather trendy right now). what changes is who, when, why and what (for)


  1. Oooh! The Mosaic from Damascus is Greek - I will see if I can translate it =D

  2. Never liked this one as much as the gullioche. But, it is much better than no mosaic at all!

    I discussed how nice your blog was with Nancie at SAMA in Antonella's class. I think that she is a big fan of yours ;)

  3. love all of the photos :)
    nice blog! I'm gonna visit again :)

    follow me on:

  4. Arteriole, let me know if you need help with the translation.

    Eric, I also prefer the guilloche, but more than that still, the meander and spirals. I am thrilled to learn you have discussed about me!Wow!

    Glam.girl, thank you so much for visiting!hope to see you again.


Your comments are more than welcome so feel free to add your own tessera to the mosaic here!
Thank you.
