"Waved like the sea, and dyed like the dove’s neck..."
The church of Santi Maria e Donato, on the island of Murano, is justly famous for its medieval mosaics, which cover not only the vault of the apse but the entire floor.
|Mosaic showing the date of completion of the laying of the floor|
|Mosaic of two yoked cocks carrying a fox|
|Mosaic of an eagle holding a small bird in its talons|
|Mosaic of chess board|
|Mosaic of two peacocks|
The mosaics were restored in the 1970s when the entire floor was relaid.
