Mosaic Work Called Trencadis by Gaudi at Park Guell

Mosaic Work Called Trencadis by Gaudi at Park Guell [enlarge]

A closeup of a serpentine bench adorned with mosaic work known as trencadis at Park Guell, Barcelona. This technique of breaking tiles of different patterns and different shapes to compose a single mosaic was constanly used by Antoni Gaudi and his followers. I found this particular shard with some numbers on it which reminds me of notations made by master masons or stone cutters on ancient walls.

I was here earlier today and thought I had left a comment about your post but I don't see it now. Sorry. I must have left one and forgot to save it.

I like the post because the design is so special and vivid in colors.

I'd like to do the same in a wall outside my house (as I admire Gaudi so much), but I wonder how difficult it is.
When I visited Park Guell, I really fell in love with this square above the coloumns!
