Great Palace Mosaic Museum

Oh, the wonderful things that can be done with tiny tiles. In Istanbul, there's a museum dedicated to mosaics, mostly ones found on the site of the Great Palace of Constantinople.

The small museum.

There are some classic, feel-good scenes. A camel walk and a little puppy love.

Then the carnage gets going. Time to instill animal mayhem.

A little elephant-lion MMA.

And then mosaic blood starts flowing. Lots of blood, multiple species blood. Dragon v. lizard, tag teaming leopards. Don't mind me, I'm just here to pluck a few dates.

Spurting neck wound. Maybe best to visit the museum on a well-digested stomach.
