Item Details
Another beautiful creation by Amy Cheng is the Celestial Playground, an 8-ft by 32-ft tripartite mosaic mural at the Jacksonville Airport. Celestial Playground treats the restroom entry and water fountain walls as a continuous space. The design flows from one frame to the next, and from a distance, creates an illusion of deep space. The murals visually reference the sky, the heavens, and the cosmos. They impart a sense of lightness, a feeling of joy to every viewer.
