This is a mural that was made by Charley Harper at the Cincinnatti Federal Building, USA, and stretched along two walls are 100 animals put together with tiles. Finished in 1964, they each measure 18 × 10.5 ft.

Charley Harper’s work is well documented in the book Illustrated Life book by Todd Olham and to be able to see this would definitely be a treat. Those of you in Cincinnati had better head there right now (I’m green with envy!)

  1. I’ve seen it! [Some of the photos above are mine.] It’s amazing — if Charley were working today, I can definitely see him working digitally, as the mosaic tiles are just like pixels.
