Mosaic art is one of the handicrafts of Iran that has many fans today. The meaning of mosaic in the word is to say anything streaked. But this term is used for art in which it is created by removing and combining different types of wood on a wood or polyester background. Numerous designs, shapes and works of art can also be obtained from this method. One of the oldest mosaics used is the Red Dome of Maragheh, which was built during the Ilkhanid period. Which is a very simple style of mosaic tiling. Mosaic tiling has flourished in the Mongol and Safavid periods. In the Qajar period, there was also tiled mosaic and an Islamic design was used in it.

For mosaic work, we must first choose the design. And then we draw our design on paper and we can print it. And then we stick the design to the background of our wood. We also cut the extra pieces with a saw blade. And we divide it into several parts. Pieces of this work are obtained, which we call these pieces stencils. We nail these pieces to the main work and we have to choose the desired color from our colored woods. Cut it to the size of a stencil and stick it on the main work. This method is also used on tiles, wood, glass, leather and metal.
