Narodil se 28. prosince 1922 jako Stanley Martin Lieber (až ve 40. letech si nechal změnit jméno na Stan Lee) na Manhattanu v New Yorku do emigrantské rodiny rumunských Židů Celie Solomonové a Jacka Liebera. Ačkoliv vyrůstal v židovské rodině, nikdy se nevyjádřil, zda je či není věřícím. Jeho rodina byla zasažena velkou hospodářskou krizí, i proto se museli přestěhovat do Washington Heights. V roce 1931 se mu narodil sourozenec, bratr Larry Lieber. Kvůli špatné finanční situaci se Lieberovi znovu přestěhovali, tentokrát do Bronxu. Stanley Lieber v dětství obdivoval filmy s Errolem Flynnem. V mládí studoval na DeWitt Clinton High School v Bronxu. Už od mládí se zajímal o psaní a snil o napsání románu, ovšem jako mladý pracoval pouze v různých příležitostných zaměstnáních, např. v centru výzkumu tuberkulózy, kde psal nekrology a lékařské zprávy. Vystudoval roku 1939a přidal se k WPA Federal Theatre Project, který byl vytvořen na podporu divadel.
V roce 1939 díky svému strýci Robbie Solomonovi získal pozici asistenta v Timely Comics, divizi vydavatelství Timely, které vlastnil Martin Goodman, manžel Stanleyho Liebera sestřenice. Brzy byl tedy oficiálně najat redaktorem Joe Simonem. V květnu 1941 dostal příležitost poprvé pracovat na komiksu. V čísle Captain America Comics No. 3 vyplňoval textové bubliny. Právě tehdy začal používat pseudonym Stan Lee, který brzy proměnil ve své oficiální jméno. Téhož roku pomáhal vytvořit svou první vlastní postavu jménem Destroyer (Keen Marlow). Poté i postavy Jack Frost a Father Time. V roce 1941 také kvůli neshodám s Goodmanem odešli Simon a Kirby od Timely Comics, devatenáctiletý Lee tím byl dosazen do funkce redaktora. Roku 1942 vstoupil do armády Spojených států amerických a sloužil u Signal corps, kde vytvářel tréninkové manuály, propagační materiály a slogany. Jeho služba skončila roku 1945. V prosinci 1947 se oženil s Joan Clayton Boocock. Rok po svatbě se přestěhovali na Long Island...
Na konci 50. let redaktor DC Comics Julius Schwartz oživil pojetí superhrdinského komiksu, který v 50. letech zažil hluboký propad zájmu. DC také v té době vytvořila první moderní superhrdinský tým Justice League of America (Liga spravedlnosti nebo také Liga spravedlivých). V reakci na tento počin Goodman najal Stana Lee, aby mu vytvořil také takový supertým. V té době chtěl Lee komiksový svět opustit, proto se nechal svou ženou přesvědčit, aby více experimentoval s postavami, jelikož již neměl co ztratit. Lee tedy předělal charakter postav. Do té doby byli superhrdinové tvořeni především pro děti, proto měli bezchybný charakter. Lee jim přidal více lidskosti a nedokonalosti. Superhrdinové tím získali špatné návyky, melancholii a celkově naturalistického ducha. V 60. letech tak vytvořil řadu dnes proslulých superhrdinů. Jako první vytvořil supertým Fantastic Four, který zaznamenal obrovský úspěch a Lee tím získal volnou ruku. Poté vytvořil superhrdiny, jakými jsou Spider-Man, X-Men,...

Lee's wife, Joan, said that he experiment with stories he liked, since he was planning on changing careers and had nothing to lose. Lee followed his wife's advice and created a set of heroes with character flaws because many heroes before were seen as nearly perfect beings. The first superheroes Lee and artist Jack Kirby created together were the Fantastic Four. They became popular which led Lee and Marvel's illustrators to create new heroes.

Bronze Age pebble mosaics have been found at Tiryns; mosaics of the 4th century BC are found in the Macedonian palace-city of Aegae, and the 4th-century BC mosaic of The Beauty of Durrës discovered in Durrës, Albania in 1916, is an early figural example; the Greek figural style was mostly formed in the 3rd century BC. Mythological subjects, or scenes of hunting or other pursuits of the wealthy, were popular as the centrepieces of a larger geometric design, with strongly emphasized borders.Pliny the Elder mentions the artist Sosus of Pergamon by name, describing his mosaics of the food left on a floor after a feast and of a group of doves drinking from a bowl.Both of these themes were widely copied. Greek figural mosaics could have been copied or adapted paintings, a far more prestigious artform, and the style was enthusiastically adopted by the Romans so that large floor mosaics enriched the floors of Hellenistic villas and Roman dwellings from Britain to Dura-Europos. Most recorded...
Early Christian art
With the building of Christian basilicas in the late 4th century, wall and ceiling mosaics were adopted for Christian uses. The earliest examples of Christian basilicas have not survived, but the mosaics of Santa Constanza and Santa Pudenziana, both from the 4th century, still exist. The winemaking putti in the ambulatory of Santa Constanza still follow the classical tradition in that they represent the feast of Bacchus, which symbolizes transformation or change, and are thus appropriate for...
In the 5th-century Ravenna, the capital of the Western Roman Empire, became the center of late Roman mosaic art. The Mausoleum of Galla Placidia was decorated with mosaics of high artistic quality in 425–430. The vaults of the small, cross-shaped structure are clad with mosaics on blue background. The central motif above the crossing is a golden cross in the middle of the starry sky. Another great building established by Galla Placidia was the church of San Giovanni Evangelista. She erected i...

The mosaic displays a variety of motifs including sea-creatures, birds, terrestrial beasts, fruits, flowers, trees and abstracts – designed to depict a terrestrial paradise of God's creation.

Under Roman and Byzantine influence the Jews also decorated their synagogues with classical floor mosaics. Many interesting examples were discovered in Galilee and the Judean Desert. The remains of a 6th-century synagogue have been uncovered in Sepphoris, which was an important centre of Jewish culture between the 3rd–7th centuries and a multicultural town inhabited by Jews, Christians and pagans. The mosaic reflects an interesting fusion of Jewish and pagan beliefs. In the center of the floor the zodiac wheel was depicted. Helios sits in the middle, in his sun chariot, and each zodiac is matched with a Jewish month. Along the sides of the mosaic are strips depicting Biblical scenes, such as the binding of Isaac, as well as traditional rituals, including a burnt sacrifice and the offering of fruits and grains. Another zodiac mosaic decorated the floor of the Beit Alfa synagogue which was built during the reign of Justin I (518–27). It is regarded one of the most important mosaics di...
In South Arabia two mosaic works were excavated in a Qatabanian from the late 3rd century, those two plates formed geometric and grapevines formation reflecting the traditions of that culture. In the Ghassanidera religious mosaic art flourished in their territory, so far five churches with mosaic were recorded from that era, two built by Ghassanid rulers and the other three by the Christian Arab community who wrote their names and dedications.
Tilework had been known there for about two thousand years when cultural exchange between Sassanid Empire and Romans influenced Persian artists to create mosaic patterns. Shapur I decorated his palace with tile compositions depicting dancers, musicians, courtesans, etc. This was the only significant example of figurative Persian mosaic, which became prohibited after Arab conquest and arrival of Islam.
Islamic architecture used mosaic technique to decorate religious buildings and palaces after the Muslim conquests of the eastern provinces of the Byzantine Empire.
