Micro-mosaics made in Rome, Italy utilize small fragments of colored stones, clay or glass, called tesserae. Each square inch can comprise over 400 tesserae. The subject matter is often based on 18th century engravings of Roman antiquities and views of Rome. In this mosaic, there are people leisurely walking past the colosseum showing the rise of taking time to simply stroll and enjoy the day instead of devoting one's life strictly to their work.
