Today, we were surprised by a free copy of the Wall Street Journal with our daily paper. What timing! In the WSJ, there was an article about the Lod Mosaic, which is on display at the Met. So I looked it up online and found this fantastic site that allows you to explore the mosaic up close. It's incredible, and it has so far survived for almost 2,000 years. Stunning!

Absolutely amazing discovery, and even more amazing is how they preserved and moved it. This just boggles my mind - what an operation. Thanks, JENEL, for sharing that w/us.
