More Sea Serpent Mosaic


I thought you might want to see a close-up of one of the designs on the dragon that "swims" in Fannie Mae Dees Park. And, given the fact that it's still hot. . .very, very hot. . .and sunny in Nashville, I thought this particular design appropriate!

To note: I'm told that the tiles Silva used were from artwork made by children in neighboring schools. In addition, the diameter of the sun (from the edge of one ray to the edge of one opposite it) is more or less two feet.

Chris, lot of work and thought went into this piece of art. Glad to see he captured a lot of fun in it, too.
