The Mosaics of the Bardo Museum

I have been several times to Tunisia and was always well received by friendly people. 

Yesterday, this country was hit by ignorant murderers sponsored by haters of individual freedom seeking to bring the world back into the dark ages and my heart bleeds with Tunisia, like it did with France 2 month ago.

The Pakistani talibans who shot Malala - a defensor of education for young women - and the terrorists who attacked the Bardo National Museum - a place to preserve and promote a culture dating back way before the Prophet they claim and betray was born - share a common hatred of education, for it is the only safe way to make sure average citizens do not get abused by powerful commercial, political or religious groups.

Today I would simply like to share with you a few of the wonderful mosaics - attesting of the magnificent Culture of ancient Tunisia - displayed at this Bardo Museum.

I am a modern mosaic artist. I admire ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine Arts and my own mosaics are often inspired by the work of ancient masters.
