Mosaics go back as far as the 3rd century in Mesopotamia. During the 4th century in Byzantium mosaic became the leading form of pictorial images. During the Roman times mosaics became much more sophisticated, utilizing the principles of perspective and gradients of color. The geometric patterns and designs of mosaics were also a heavily used concept in decorating buildings and floors in Western Europe at the turn of the century.
