Mosaics in shrines

Some mosaic images inside Venetian street shrines. The second one is the French saint, Therese de Lisieux, also known as the Little Flower.

This one is out on the island of Murano (an old photo that I scanned in with my new scanner). I want to get a better photo of this one next trip.

Oh I love your mosaic pictures!

Thank you for these lovely mosaic shrines. The first Madonna is beautiful; her facial expression is similar to the one seen in many representations of the Pieta'.

Oh my oh my those are gorgeous!

Hi Annie, wonderful photos! These are beautiful mosaics.

I absolutely loved reading about the "little flower of Jesus." It's too bad she died so young because from reading her words she had an amazing sense of spirituality. I enjoyed reading the passages from her writings a lot.

Great read for my Friday morning! Enjoy your weekend Annie!


So lovely...your blog is making me rethink my decision to stay in Florence!! Almost... :)
