The term andamento carries both mosaic and musical significance (the music related notion was new to me). I love the idea of marrying two forms of art (musical and tactile) into one piece and so this beauty carries both of those "tunes".
Referring to mosaics, andamento is the visual flow and direction within a mosaic produced by the placement of rows of tesserae (mosaic pieces). Andamento offers movement to a piece.
Musically speaking, andamento refers to a bridge and is defined as being "introduced for the purpose of adding interest to the composition, binding it more closely together, or establishing a more intimate correspondence of style between its various sections."
