Picture Postcard: The Mosaic Buddha

4 Sep

September 4, 2013

Like yesterday, this is another picture I snapped in Red Hook. While I would like to give credit where credit is due, I did not note nor do I recall the name of the store in whose window I spotted this. It was an art store, closed. It seems like everything opened late in Red Hook.


This is a beautiful, happy piece. Click on it and you’ll see it is made of thousands of tiny tiles. Probably all of us at one time or another in grade school made mosaics out of sea shells or pasta, but this as far from grade-school art as you can get.

This part of Red Hook was really upscale, very new, There were offices of major investment companies, high-end shops (Tiffany was there), and restaurants catering to the fancy-pants crowd. As you’ll see in posts yet to come, Red Hook is not all hipsters and bankers. There is a lot of original, old-school Red Hook left too.
