THE MOSAICS OF JORDAN
Jordan has an amazing collection of marble floor mosaics dating from the 6th-8th centuries. They are more stylised than earlier Roman mosaics but have a unique vigour and decorative flair. This is a tiny selection of my rather poor snaps - click on the thumbnails for larger images. There is a fabulous book called The Mosaics of Jordan by Michele Piccirillo which does them more justice.
