Framed Mosaic Intarsia
18" x 24"

Cradled by the tea leaves, the drifting infant was tossed about on the waves. The curious sea creatures watched with wonder and concern at Maui's plight as the tea leaves began to separate. With his ark slowly washing away and drifting toward a coral reef, Maui sank into the waters. But, at the last moment, the jellyfish swept beneath Maui and wrapped him in the soft folds of its' body. The child was thus protected from drowning and the danger of jagged coral as they floated toward the pounding surf.

Artist Analysis: The background is primarily of Venetian and Byzantine glass tile, lava pebbles and crushed glass. Maui is of pebbles with costume jewelry for the eyes. The sun is a hat pin. The jellyfish is of auto safety glass with each tentacle a different kind of chain. The fish, sea weed, large sea shell and coral are generally made of tile, beads and rock. This was the first Mosaic Intarsia to be created for the House of Legends Museum.
