The Mausoleum of Galla Placidia is a Roman building in Ravenna, Italy. Experts describe it as “the earliest and best preserved of all mosaic monuments, and at the same time one of the most artistically perfect”. In particular the 5th century ceiling mosaic – Garden of Eden
Is that not just mind blowing craftsmanship, and over 1500 year old! and the inspiration behind the Ravenna set.
Now before we get into the details of the pattern (release date June 27th) there are a couples of thing you should know.
Eco Fusion by Nurturing Fibers is fabulous; a mix of 50/50 cotton and bamboo that adds that special touch to any project. The strands of cotton are sturdy and matte and the bamboo strands are shiny and sleek. The best of both worlds!
