Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

This past week in southern Turkey this gorgeous floor mosaic was unearthed. Measuring 1600 square feet (that's about the size of all the livable floor space in my house), the floor was in a bath house and exemplifies the influence of Greco-Roman designs and motifs during the 3rd and 4th century AD. 

What I find most fascinating about this new piece is that the motifs are still being used today. This floor looks like it could be supplanted into an expensive bathroom renovation today and would be at the top of high style.
