Jordan Mosaics

December 27th

Moving on from Madaba

Madaba is home to St. George Orthodox church which houses what we believe to be the oldest map ever discovered. This map is done in the medium of mosaic, which is a Jordanian tradition

The map was laid in the floor, and unfortunately has been damaged by construction. However, what remains has been essential in discovering lost treasures

The detail in the mosaic is simply stunning

"She never seemed shattered; to me, she was a breathtaking mosaic of the battles she's won."

Matt Baker

This mosaic is better preserved and is inlaid in the floor of the church on top of Mount Nebo

And a bonus picture of the cat I befriended on Mount Nebo
