do you like mosaics?

I know that making a mosaic is a very clever thing to do and that the best ones take hours of painstaking work, and I also think the very ancient ones are a wonder that they were put together in the way that they were. What I can not understand is the current fashion to take a perfectly beautiful picture and turn it into a mosaic. Anyone like to do this, or understand why people prefer a picture in pieces as opposed to the original whole?

i am not very talented in doing things with my hands, but the mosaics i enjoy and im successfull lol i enjoy them, because i like history, so i try to do some of them who have a history background. then i forget the time and live in this Aera. does it make sense to you? lol

Yes, Marlyse, it makes a lot of sense to me. I am glad it is something you can enjoy to do and maybe willow would like a few tips for her next venture? I was fascinated by the mosaic which is preserved at Lullingstone Villa in Kent (Roman times) but I can not see why anyone would want to take a perfectly nice modern picture and turn it into a mosaic. Maybe my brain needs to expand a little to understand the concept, I don't know?
