Close up of the background and lion's head.
Close up of the peacock in the corner of The Striding Lion mosaic.I have visions of new quilts using tiny pieces of fabric. Surprisingly, I really like the muted palette of colors in the mosaics. I say "surprisingly" because I generally use a much more bold color scheme.
Some of the mosaics reminded me of traditional quilt patterns.
