So, here is Part III. After seeing the Today Show yesterday it inspired me to do a short and sneak peak of St. Peter’s Basilica. One of my favorite pictures i took there was of St. Joseph’s Altar. The title of the mosaic is “Transfiguration” by Raphael. The mosaic was copied from the original piece of art. I was so impressed, that it is not a fresco as you may think but a mosaic! The colors are out of this world! Details, Insane!!! I tried to capture the details so you can see what I mean, the tiny, tiny, pieces put together into one beautiful piece of art. Enjoy!
