Mosaics in St. Mary's Church

This is a mosaic in an alcove in the rear of the new St Mary's Church. It is life size. I encourage you to click on the photo to enlarge the image and examine the subtle shading of the tiles, particularly in the soft folds of the blue cape.

Below is a mosaic of Christ, also in an alcove at the back of the church.

The mosaics in the church are not made from glass, but are granite tiles.
The walls and floors are granite and the front facade is made of granite blocks.

Tomorrow I will show photos of the outside facade.

These are beautiful mosaics. The work on them is very impressive. I love mosaics in churches. It makes me think of the cathedral in St. Louis Missouri, one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in.
