Product Details

Dogs feature in many Roman mosaics, from the well known guard dogs of Pompeii ('Cave Canum') to hunting dogs such as this one here. Usually the presence of a collar confirms the representation of a domesticated animal as opposed to a wild dog. From the Orpheus Mosaic in the National Museum of Roman Art, Mérida, Spain. Dated to 4th century CE

This kit allows to to recreate a detail from one of them. I've taken the head and redone it using unglazed ceramic tiles which are easy to cut. Although you have the image of my copy to follow you also get an image of the original.

You can cut the tesserae with scissors but I have found using the mini nippers to be a better option.

20 cm x 20 cm baseboard, the tesserae are 10mm x 10mm x 4mm, everything you need is included except nippers.

(I do not supply grout with these due to the regulations. Grout contain cement which can cause rashes and so cannot be included in any craft kit that can appeal to children.)
