Captivating Mosaic Wall Art

Mosaics on the historic grounds of Villa D'Este, Italy's most storied retreat, are among the country's most photographed landmarks. This particular wall is the Mosaic of Nymphaeum Villa D'Este which is an example of Renaissance architecture. Emphasizing pattern and scale, Renaissance style draws influence from Roman architecture.
