Locate Greece on a world map. Find out about the people and art of ancient Greece and today. Mosaics date back 4000 years or more, when the Greeks pushed terracotta cones into a background for decoration. In the 4th century BCE the Greeks were using precise geometric patterns and detailed scenes of people, animals, or the sea.
Today, mosaics are made by grouping small pieces of clay, tile, pebbles, or other materials together to form a pattern or design, very much like those of the ancient Greeks! You can make a colorful paper mosaic in this same tradition to decorate a handy pencil cup or vase.
