Nov. Theme Day-Color Blue -Ceramic Wall
A ceramic wall at the corner in Huntingdon. It's about an hour drive from Bellefonte, but when I seen it, I had to use this for theme day. Alot of work had to go into this. Double click to enlarge. You can see the details better that way.
Added Note: I emailed the Huntingdon Historical Society to find out exactly what this mural means. Here's what they had to say;
"The mural on the wall in Huntingdon was sponsored by the Arts Council and created by an artist from Philadelphia. Each of the earthen medallions is representative of part of the heritage of Huntingdon. They read from right to left.
Fossils surrounded by green tile, marble chips and designed into a giant nautilus. Fossils were used in the creation of the mosaic.
The Standing stone, surrounded by circles of green tile representing nature and its importance to American life and Native American Culture.
Blair Building, representing Huntingdon Industry, and a pair of hands represents the workers of Huntingdon who created the built environment. The diamond shape of the plaque represents the diamond in down-town Huntingdon – once the town square.
RR and canal, representing transportation corridors.
local craftspeople, surrounded by local pottery shards.
Underlying the mural is a band of blue marbles, glass and mirrors that represent the Juniata River and its contributories."
