The Sqallija Terracotta set of Lazarus Tiles was salvaged from Triq San Pawl, San Pawl il-Baħar.
These three-dimensional tiles are known locally as Ta' Palermo as they were a style popular with the Sicilian nobility who used them extensively throughout their palazzos and of which many were used in their Maltese residences.
One can still see this style of encaustic tile in several locations, most notably Villa Messina, the country house of the Count of Messina.
Size 21cm x 21cm
To hang your Lazarus Tile attach two small hooks 15cm apart.
If hanging on a stone wall, use a drill and plastic wall plugs with hooks to avoid damaging the stone.
If attaching to a gypsum wall use plasterboard plugs and hooks to ensure that the Lazarus Tile is securely hung.
