A Zeugma Fish for Brazil

From my work diary

In January 2017 I installed another copy of a fish from Zeugma’s Poseidon and Thetis mosaic into the floor stone of our out door shower in Brasilia. The area was covered with  virtues glass tiles which started to fall off. So I removed them and repaired the edges with natural stone parts in order to have the mosaic embedded. Now I can observe the mosaic in rain and sun. It was a good exercise to work in the rain season. A gazebo over the work site avoided to have the tropical rain ruin the fresh cement. During the restoration of the vitreous glass on the stele I got caught several times in a torrential rain under the gazebo. Might wait until the dry season starts with more outside installations. Although then I have to keep the cement wet!
