What is a mosaic?  A mosaic is a picture or pattern made with small pieces of ceramic tile.  The Romans and other ancient people made very elaborate mosaics.  They might make a counter top or a wall or even the whole floor of a room might be a mosaic. Mosaics were practical because they were easy to wash and helped to keep the house cool. They were also beautiful. The Romans loved to combine a practical purpose with wonderful art.
