Life Imitates Art


Wendy Tanner recently submitted this photo for the 2007 edition of the Mosaic Yearbook. Wendy is an Australia mosaic artists who made this mosaic for a "friend" who frequents her studio. Here's her story:
I made this bench with concrete blocks outside my studio, and decorated it with a mosaic using pebbles at one end, gradually changing to broken tiles, using the same natural colours. In contrast, the red and yellow tiles, show a large diamond python (carpet snake) which had swallowed a small animal and hung around the studio while we were renovating it. Amazingly, the original snake turned up recently, to meet its mosaic mate!! This photo shows them both together.
The full story of the snake can be found here.
