This mosaic must be 10 feet high and 5 feet wide. This is but one of many, many permanent works of art available for viewing in St. Peter's Basilica. When you stand before this amazing painting, you cannot see the individual tiles, only the magnificent color and vibrant beauty of this 16th century masterpiece. Only through magnification can you see the definition of each tiny tile (tessera) used to create these masterpieces. Ask why mosaic? The answer was because it lasts forever.
