The mosaic for the Waiting room is a decorative addition to the architectural design of the palace. In general, a mosaic consists of nine basic elements, but this one is considered the main one.

Here is a dancing girl, in the image of which Japanese features are clearly visible. This was the main wish of the customer. This was explained by the fact that in the possession of the family there were many exhibits of oriental art. Therefore, this direction of decor was chosen for a reason. The girl’s robe seems to consist of many pyramids, each of which depicts an ornament - a symbol of infinity. Thanks to this ornament, all the components of the mosaic are organically combined with each other.

In the center you can see the famous tree of life. Such a creation, of course, gives rise to a lot of feelings and emotions in the beholder. It is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge. A tree is a peculiar representation of a road on which there are many paths and small paths. After all, everyone knows that the path to the goal will never be direct and simple. To emphasize this, the branches of the tree were depicted twisted in a spiral.

On the one hand, the plot is simple and understandable, and on the other hand, you can see the depicted stones - barriers on the way of man. On the branches sits a bird, presented in dark colors. They are a symbol of great danger. And the motive is a kind of reminder that Life and Death are inextricably linked. It is worth noting that this work was one of the last major orders of the great master.

    It is all true, but as for me, if there are visitors to the sites, then there are comments, tk. everyone wants to take part in the discussion of a particular topic, thereby to light up in the circle of bloggers, so I think the number of comments is in direct proportion to the number of visitors .. well, we don’t take spam of course
