A Victorian path is always a tile, or rather a mosaic, composed of at least two types of small tiles. Usually these are just black and white squares in a checkerboard pattern. Sometimes – interspersed with brown, red tiles, ocher, stripes on the sides. Sometimes black tiles are replaced by blue and blue, which also looks advantageous when paired with white. Sometimes complex compositions in the form of flowers, ornaments, patterns are laid out from the tiles.
