Le 1er Mai, Fete du Muguet.

Today is May Day, French tradition is to offer a sprig of Lilly of the Valley to the woman  (women ?) you love... 

Yesterday I completed Mariam's eyes - Well, I lied... I simply completed the laying of the tesserae, it is far from finished, as I have still to flip her, grout her, frame her...

But, from the stone cutter standpoint, it is a done deal...

Here is a reminder of the different phases of the work...

The beginning...

Mariam's Eyes, Le 7 Mars 2014

First tesserae laid - Border, and sandy background.
