A small part of the Roman mosaic (called the Great Pavement) at Woodchester, Gloucestershire, England.

The mosaic is 48 feet by 48 feet (15 metres by 15 metres) and uses 1.5 million pieces of stone, each 0.5 by 0.5 inches (12 mm by 12 mm ). Once the floor of a main hall of a Roman villa, it was laid around AD 325.

Photographed by Adrian Pingstone in 1972 (the last time the mosaic was on display).
