All original, a true collectors item Micromosaics (or micro mosaics, micro-mosaics) are a special form of mosaic that uses unusually small mosaic pieces (tesserae) of glass, or in later Italian pieces an enamel-like material, to make small figurative images.

Surviving ancient Roman mosaics include some very finely worked panels using very small tesserae, especially from Pompeii, but only from Byzantine art are there mosaic icons in micromosaic with tesserae as small as the best from the Modern period.

Weighs 7.6 grams

Measures 2.2 inches across

The central Dove section measures 22mm this includes the two silver balls which are decorated top and bottom of the Dove

The Dove itself measures 13mm across
