Melrose artist Lisa Tiemann and her dog, Cora, with the Green Man mosaic outside her home, photographed by Amanda Hurley
Tiemann spearheaded the community mosaic project for Cedar Park, Melrose, as outlined in this article by Amanda Hurley.
A total of 35 artists worked on the project, coming together to create a masterpiece that celebrates human connection to nature.
Also contributing to the project are several pairs of brilliant glass eye cabochons from handmadeglasseyes.com.
At the center of the mosaic are a pair of large, detailed green and blue glass eyes, offering themselves as a focal point for the whole design.
Several other bird glass eyes also appear throughout the surrounding panels in the 5x5 foot mosaic.
Most notable among the birds are the yellow eyes that stare out of an owl in a top panel of the mosaic.

It's wonderful to see a community come together to create something so inspiring!
