Aztec Mosaic in the British Museum
Yes, that means YOU!
Many people around the world have really mourned the passing of Australian conservationist Steve Irwin. His passion for wildlife was absolutely undeniable and was something to be admired.
The good folks at the Mosaic Addicts Yahoo Group recently came up with the idea of a mosaic tribute project that hopefully will encourage people to contribute to Irwin’s wildlife causes. The basic premise is that people can make a mosaic of some form of wildlife on mesh, and send it to Sandy at OzMosaics in Queensland who will collect the contributions and create the final mural. Sandy is an amazing person and an equally amazing mosaicist, and I’m absolutely certain that she will create something incredibly dramatic and wonderful.
It’s an amazing opportunity to create something really interesting and fun for a fantastic cause and I really urge people to get involved and donate a mosaic. This project is definitely happening in every sense of the word.
You can follow the progress of the project at http://crikeymatemosaic.wordpress.com/. So bookmark the site. Check it out frequently. Leave comments. The blog, like the mural, is a work in progress and we need your input.
See ya there!
