Grandma's Purse

If you view the mosaic from the upper floors of the surrounding buildings, the overall design of Grandma's Purse is that of a giant, friendly Petri dish; with the eyes and lips of happy micro-organisms sending out jets of water. There are 20 cast glass objects, 20 bronze objects, and 100 water-jet cut tiles.
