Mosaic Tile Women

While we were in Jordan, we visited a shop where these gorgeous mosaic tile pieces were made. They would put the mosaics on the wall, on tables, on boxes, etc. It was actually really remarkable. The craziest thing, is that as you walk in, there are women making these mosaics right in front of you. They say it takes them sometimes up to four months to make one of them. They have these colored stones that they cut then glue. I asked the one of them if she liked doing it. She said yes, but it hurts her hands and her back because they do it all day everyday.
