Kingfisher Mosaic

Kingfisher mosaic made of Blue Pearl granite

This Kingfisher mosaic is done! I just have to wait for the frame shop to reopen once the coronavirus restrictions are eased. The majority of the birds body is made of Blue Pearl granite, quarried in Norway. I used a Mexican beach pebble for the eye, which doesn’t show up great in the photo. The background is the Brazilian marble Blue Macaubas. The mosaic is 12″ by 12″.

On a related bird note, this Carolina Wren is nesting in a corner of my tile stacks. Admittedly, it’s not much of a photo, but she’s really tucked into the back of the shelf and her nest is dark.
