Framed Mosaic Intarsia
18" x 24"

Noticing the agitation of the fish and shell creatures, the God of the Sea investigated and found the jellyfish doing its best to help the infant. Lifting Maui from the exhausted jellyfish, the God of the Sea restored fresh tea leaves to the childs' body. Maui was then taken to the home of the Sea God where he was reared to be a strong and a quick-witted youth. 

Artist Analysis: Because these figures are shown close-up, much of the surface is Cambria pebbles and black sand beach lava from the Big Island of Hawaii. The remainder of the background area is glass tile, pebbles, abalone shell, and one of our white porcelain dinner plates which was broken. The stars are sea shells and bugle beads and the eyes of the sea god are buttons.  The bubbles from the sea are buttons, a decoration from an antique Victorian purse which once belonged to an elderly Aunt, a watch part, earring settings and a six sided nut. The waves of the sea are capped with white shells.
