> DESCRIPTION

Over 300-square feet large and nearly 2000 years ago, this ancient Roman floor mosaic is one of the world’s largest and best preserved. Discovered in 1996 in Lod, Israel, the "Lod Mosaic" is unique with its depiction of exotic animals, a profusion of fish and fleets of Mediterranean ships. Study the mosaic’s glorious details and uncover the stories hidden in its imagery before it returns to Israel. On view for a limited time, only at The Field Museum.

The Lod Mosaic is on loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Shelby White and Leon Levy Lod Mosaic Center.
