This small restoration of the existing mosaic floor is an excellent example of Rugo’s ability to harvest existing Tessere and create a new mosaic garland section within the Narhex’s flooring. Our mosaic artists carefully removed existing mosaic in an area to be demolished, cleaned and shaped these tiles, and created field tracings of the required pattern. Rugo completed the mosaic panels in our mosaic studio and installed the mosaic to infill the missing section. The result is a seamless floor mosaic border to achieve this historic restoration of the Basilica.
