Of mosaics at building lobbies

You could still see them in those buildings dating back from 50's and 60's when a hallway would be the equivalent of a spacious apartment by today's standadards. Touristic landmarks, mythological tales, abstract patterns, or geometrical etchings; such mosaics - usually badly maintained over time - speak of that former glory of those places and the people that inhabit them as the social standing of owners or tennants changes over time. Relics from a different era, they still carry themselves with dignity and grace, albeit even if they are actually walking wounded.
