Art Feature: Genesis, the Gift of Life
At our last photo shoot, we made a stop at this beautiful mosaic at the Dallas Museum of Art in downtown Dallas.
Created by Miguel Covarrubius in 1954, this sixty-foot long mosaic entitled, "Genesis, the Gift of Life" is a Dallas landmark. Per the Dallas Museum of Art, "Genesis is based on an ancient Mexican myth that four worlds preceded the world we currently live in. According to the myth, four principal deities controlled the four elements—water, earth, fire, and air—and each god destroyed the world once using their element. The gods then worked together to create the fifth, or current world."
The gorgeous glass tiles made a perfect backdrop for our "Color Craze" themed feature! It's awe-inspiring to imagine how much work went into placing so many individual glass pieces.
