Mandala Rug

Inlayed Venetian Tiles on Plywood insert in the

Cement Stucco floor by Marta Fernandez (look in Friends!)

Two snakes forming a central eye-protector mandala

Mandala in the central eye protected by glass, holographic material in the iris, transparency in the pupil (3/4" deep transparency with iridicent black glass at the bottom)

Construction: you can see the routed channels in the wood with the tesserae on place, taped with adhesive scotch tape to hold them together, raise them to place the cement and back to place!
