Abstract

The theme of this article is the three mosaic pavements and we think that they are oriented from Edessa qanhurfa) which are exhibited in Toronto Royal Ontario Museum today. One of the three mosaics mentioned here called the Young Girl Mosaic. This mosaic is very similar to the mosaic pavements found in Edessa rock tombs and showing local production characteristics. Artemis Mosaic, which is the second mosaic panel, reflects contemporary design features with Haleplibahce Mosaics from Edessa (Sanlizufa). The last panel reviewed in the article is the Lion Figure Mosaic. The basic characteristics of the Lion figure reflect the characteristics of Edessa local mosaic workshop.
