Cobblestone streets from around the world - PRAGUE

 via

There's something majestic and artistic about cobblestone streets. I see them all too often here in Italy but this type of street paving is encountered around the world and it goes back thousands of years ago. This is - again - one of those posts that have just popped up in seconds.

So, I said to myself why not do a series of posts with cobblestone streets from around the world? Simple, short and inspiring.

Cobblestone streets it is then! The ones we love to walk on. Perhaps our high heeled shoes don't love them that much but anything cobble and stone for a  mosaic artist is a feast. Stay tuned!

A presto!

  1. As a pebble mosaicist (mosaicoslapasera.com) I look forward to reading your blogs and seeing the images.
    I have always admired the beauty of pebbles. I am in Ravenna at the moment and enjoing Ravenna Mosaico 2013. Something I have noted is that there is not a single artist who works with with mosaic genre represented within the numerous exhibitions. The TAMO museum makes reference to this mosaic genre.
    Having said that, It was inspiring to see one of Verdiano Marxi's pieces paying homage to Pella's pebble mosaics.

    1. And I look forward to discover what's out there as far as cobblestone streets are concerned! I love the challenge of this series of post and I can't thank you enough for your support. It's a shame I still haven't been able to go to Ravenna but I'm always either amidst high volume translation work or a variety of other balancing acts or blog writing. I have been over to your site and really loved your work! I need to check out Verdiano Marxi. Thank you for letting me know.
