Italy Part III – Vatican: St. Peter’s Basilica (St. Joseph’s Altar)

So, here is Part III.  After seeing the Today Show yesterday it inspired me to do a short and sneak peak of St. Peter’s Basilica.  One of my favorite pictures i took there was of St. Joseph’s Altar.  The title of the mosaic is “Transfiguration” by Raphael.  The mosaic was copied from the original piece of art.  I was so impressed, that it is not a fresco as you may think but a mosaic!  The colors are out of this world!  Details, Insane!!!  I tried to capture the details so you can see what I mean, the tiny, tiny, pieces put together into one beautiful piece of art.  Enjoy!
