The Kiss (original Der Kuss) was painted by Gustav Klimt, during his ‘golden period’, and is probably his most famous work. It depicts a couple, bound up in various shades of gold and symbols, sharing a kiss against a bronze background.
The dusky featured man dominates the woman, holding her face to bestow the kiss. The woman with a lighter complexion kneels beneath the man, resignedly clutching his neck and hand.
The lovers are situated at the edge of a flowered escarpment. The man is wearing neutral coloured rectangles and a crown of vines; the woman wears brightly coloured tangent circles and flowers in her hair. The twain’s embrace is enveloped by triangular vining and a veil of concentric circles.
Similarly juxtaposed couples appear in both Klimt’s Beethoven Frieze and Stoclet Frieze.

For mounting the mosaic please ask skilled craftsmen for assistance. Mounting mosaics is not more difficult than mounting tiles. You should only take care that all materials used are appropriate for marble or granite (limestone in general). Especially it is strongly recommended to use only silicone dedicated for marble.
