Zodiac Mosaic Floor

The Museum at Eldridge Street is thrilled to announce the installation of its new mosaic floor, based on Jewish interpretations of the zodiac, designed by renowned artist Mark Podwal. The spectacular floor brings symbols of the astrological zodiac to life through a mosaic tile design fabricated and installed by artisans from Progetto Arte Poli, a storied and innovative studio workshop based in Verona, Italy. This mosaic floor reinterprets the twelve zodiac signs according to Jewish tradition. Each sign is paired with the first Hebrew letter of the month it is associated with according to the Hebrew calendar.
