Record Type: concept
opus sectile (technique) (inlay (process), <surface covering processes and techniques>, ... Processes and Techniques (hierarchy name))

 

Note: The process of creating designs by fitting together individually shaped pieces of durable material, usually stone or glass, where each piece forms an element in the design or pattern. It is distinguished from mosaic technique, which involves insetting small, uniform fragments of stone or glass (tesserae) to fill in areas or lines in the design, but each tessera does not itself form a pattern or element.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Het proces waarbij ontwerpen worden uitgevoerd door afzonderlijk gevormde stukjes duurzaam materiaal, meestal steen of glas, samen te voegen, waarbij elk stukje een element in het ontwerp of patroon is. Te onderscheiden van de moza├»ektechniek, waarbij kleine stukjes steen of glas (tesserae) van dezelfde vorm worden gebruikt voor gebieden of lijnen in het ontwerp, maar waarbij elke tessera zelf geen deel uitmaakt van het patroon of element hierin is.
