Yezidi Mosaics update, March 17, 2016

My collection of 7 portraits of eyes of Yezidi children has  well progressed since our last update on February 2nd. At this time, Yezidi 20 still needed to be flipped, Yezidi 13 was 15 % complete, and Yezidi 36 existed only as a project.

I have now flipped 6 out of the 7 mosaics. Four of them are framed and ready to be displayed. Two of them (Yezidi 20 and 13) still need some cleaning to eliminate the glue.

I flipped Yezidi 13 on March 15, and taped the operation. Here is the video of this operation, this is the moment when one sees the actual mosaic for the first time... A very moving one !

At this time, I have laid 10 % of Yezidi 36

Yezidi 36 - Work in Progress

The 7 mosaics should be ready by mid April. I would like to sell them to raise funds to help the Free Yezidi Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping the Yezidi people from Iraq and Syria. We have started thinking about the way we could organize a sale / auction. We have little experience on this matter, and all help or suggestion is welcome.

If you have some experience in organizing this kind of charity / fund raising event, please contact me at frederic.lecut or by phone at (334) 798 1639.


I am a modern mosaic artist with a deep admiration for ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine Arts. You can see some of my own mosaics on my site mosaicblues.
