MOSAIC MASTERPIECE

41-million pieces of tile and glass,
more than 8,000 shades of color,
cut, placed and installed over the decades
on 83,000 square feet of soaring domes
and arches inside the 
Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis.

One of the "oustanding cathedrals of
the Americas", and a masterpeice
of Byzantine mosaic craftsmanship,
this cathedral is a showpiece attracting
 visitors from around the world. 

(Mosaics under the side chapels 
and arcades were installed by 
Tiffany and Company.)
