Byzantine Tesserae Oblong Silk Scarf
A vivid assemblage of glass as well as gold- and silver-leaf tesserae—small pieces of colored material—creates the eye-catching pattern on our silk scarf. These tiny tiles in the Museum's holdings are thought to have come from a Byzantine mosaic crafted between the 6th and 15th centuries.
