Crouching Dragon...

Tonight, I completed the laying of the Tesserae of Yamaoka Tesshu's Tiger and Dragon Mosaics. It has been raining so much since last night, that the glue is having a hard time drying up...

There is still lots of work left. Next thing to do will be to pre-grout - then to glue the support on top, after that flip the pieces and finish them. Depending upon what they look like, I may decide to not use any grout. I have not made up my mind yet. 

These are reproductions of Calligraphies by 19th century Kendo and Calligraphy Master Yamaoka Tesshu. 

Each piece is 20 x 49", materials are Travertine, Granite, and Porcelain.
