Four Marble Mosaics Commissioned by Northeastern University, Boston

Collection: Northeastern University, Boston

The above mosaic portrays the Toftevaag, a century-old Norwegian fishing boat
re-outfitted as a research vessel, sailing off the coast of the Rock of Gibraltar.

One of four mosaics commissioned by Eson Chan, Art Director at Northeastern University Magazine,to illustrate an article about dolphin watching off the coast of Spain. Days of the Dolphin, by Gary Goshgarian ran in the November Issue, 2002. Although created expressly for publication, the mosaics remain in the university’s permanent collection.

The mosaics included in the above slider show typical coastal houses off the coast of Greece, a close-up of a dolphin and dolphins at play in the Alboran Sea.
