That Ain't Hay!

Sally and I spent this last rainy weekend in Ravenna, once the seat of the Roman Empire and home to 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites noted for their Byzantine mosaics. Outside one of them, the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, I was surprised to see this art installation. It is made of splinters of glass mosaic tile and would look right at home grazing with the flock of bales in the background of my recent post "Haying Time."
