Green Hills Public Library Circle of Life

Project Description:

 

- Artist: Mosaic Design by Sonata Kazimieraitiene; Mosaic Fabrication: Carolyn Elaine

- Broken Tile Mosaic with Clay Relief Stone

 

This 70sq ft artwork is affixed to the convex exterior wall of the Green Hills Public Library. The imagery depicts the inherent features of a community whose earliest inhabitants were Indians during the Upper Mississippian and early historic periods. Archeological excavations reveal two Indian settlements remained in the area until the 1832 Black Hawk War. Mosaic tile, sculpted clay relief and stone are used to replicate the landscape of an area that is still rich with hills, forest preserves, horses and stables
