  • Exclusively produced for Westminster Abbey, this exquisite high resolution photographic image shows the cosmati pavement in all of its splendour.
    The Cosmati pavement can be found in front of the High Altar in the Abbey; it is a unique and remarkable object made up of more than 80,000 individual pieces of porphyry, onyx and glass.
    The materials were brought from Rome and assembled here in 1268 by order of Henry III who had started re-building Edward the Confessor’s Abbey in the new Gothic style in 1245. The Cosmati pavement is unique for the complexity and subtlety of its design and workmanship. The name ‘cosmati’ refers to the Italian family who specialised in this technique, and the idea of laying such a pavement in the Abbey probably came from Abbot Richard Ware, who went to Rome in 1258.
    The print is set in a deep white mount
    The overall size of the illustration is H20 x L20cm and the mount is H30 x L30cm.
