Lecture: Mosaics and the Quilts They Inspire
Mosaics and the Quilts They Inspire, will take you on a journey from the early American Indian basket patterns in mosaics, through the rule of the Moors in Andalusia and the mosaics of the Alhambra palace, and on to Italy with the marble mosaics of Pisa and Venice. The similarities of these mosaics to popular quilting patterns is displayed through quilt replicas of these early mosaics and antique and modern-day adaptations. We continue on to the first century mosaics of Ephesus, Turkey. You won’t want to miss her reproduction of the wall paintings of Thera dating back to 1650BC.
