Mosaics

It is wonderful the way that aspects of Tunisian culture in this case the arts manifests itself in the most unlikely places.  The photograph below is of a mosaic which hangs above the entrance to the municipal fish market in La Goulette, which is a coastal suburb of Tunis.  The mosaic depicts the sea with fishes and an anchor and is such a simple and understated touch.  Normally, one would not expect to find a mosaic adorning the exterior wall of the municipal fish market.
