Lullingstone’s Europa is a reproduction of a famous mosaic from the Lullingstone Roman Villa in the UK.

This particular mosaic represents the rapt of Princess Europa by Zeus, chief of the gods, disguised as a white Bull.

Here is an article about the Lullingstone’s mosaics from my MosaicBlues News blog, and about how I recreated its design, and built the mosaic in reverse method.

The rapt of europa by Zeus, work in process.

Around the mid 3rd century, Romano-British mosaicists began to develop a very unique graphic style, more primitive and impressionistic than other more classical styles of Roman mosaics. It makes me think of a resurgence of Celtic patterns or ways to represent things predating the Claudian invasion of England in the 1st century.

I am particularly fond of this style.
