Micro mosaics are pictures made from small pieces of stone or glass tiles known as "Tessera". The Italians have developed great skill in producing these pieces. The more elaborate designs featured very intricate designs handmade with many small tiles. These required a skilled artist and produced small pieces of wearable Fine Art. These were often purchased as a remembrance while on Grand Tour.
