Tiffany Mosaic

Tiffany Mosaic

This mosaic is located in Lake Merritt Methodist church. It is a stunning example of Favrile glass used in mosaic form, and one can only lament that it is not filled with light from behind. The cutting is intricate and the grouting is very tight. It appears to be a scene of Christ as King enthroned , surrounded by angels, Moses and Abraham at his feet, and processions of christians af various garb in procession toward the central panel.
