Mosaic tiles from Byland Abbey. Medieval, 13th century. From North Yorkshire, England.


The creation of mosaic floors by combining different shapes and colours of tiles was a common practice in medieval English religious houses. The Cistercian order in particular favoured this type of floor and used it to spectacular effect in abbeys such as Rievaulx and Byland, both in Yorkshire.

Mary Delany (née Granville) (14 May 1700 – 15 April 1788) was an English Bluestocking, artist, and letter-writer; equally famous for her "paper-mosaicks" and her lively correspondence.

 She created 1,700 of these works, calling them her "Paper Mosaiks [sic]",[11] from the age of 71 to 88, when her eyesight failed her. During this time, Mary made nearly 1,000 of the paper flowers.[12]

Delany, in her eighties at this time, had a reputation for cutting out and making the intricate paper mosaics (collages) now in the British Museum
