    Keeping Mosaic Art Alive...

    by MM212 Updated Aug 5, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Madaba is proud of its mosaic tradition and is striving to keep the art alive. In 1992, the Madaba Institute for Mosaic Art & Restoration (MIMAR) was founded by the government to help train locals in mosaic art and restoration. A few ateliers scattered around town make interesting mosaic artefacts that could be a great souvenir or gift to bring back home.
