This column is going to focus on the columns I found in the A terminal on the way to gate A-5. Each of the columns is a different picture created out of tiles no more than 1/2 inch by 1/2inch. The whole column is tiled completely to the top.
This one has the feel of Chinese dragons and is so cool.
On the other side, behind me, are a bunch of Delta gates and food. I do not remember this beautiful art work the last time I was there.
If you notice at the very edge of the picture, you'll find a wonderful picture of the Mona Lisa as its projected on a screen.
I did not notice any signs giving any information on what this artwork represents. The artwork is fantastic, especially if you realize these pictures are created out of different colored tiles with a bit of grout inbetween.
The artist who created these is quite talented. I wonder if he or she had to place the pictures on graph paper first so they'd know exactly where each tile went.
At a distance you do not see the small breaks between tiles. In order to see the whole picture, you have to walk around the whole column, otherwise you get just a part of it.
This column lies between the two bathrooms as you head down towards the currency exchange. Look at it carefully and you can almost see the individual branches at the top.
The tile gives the trunk a realistic texture, one associated with regular trees. It looks like there is a puppy exploring the ground between the sign and the walkway.
This one makes me want to touch the puppy to see if its real.
What ever it represents, I love the pattern created because it makes the whole column look so much taller and more slender.
I don't think many people take time to look at the artwork spread on these columns. I watched people striding down the way without slowing down to look at these magnificent pieces.
I adore them.
Look at how detailed it is all done. The different sized tiles are put together to create the pictures. Each is beautifully done.
Tomorrow, you will get part two, showing some of the new places built at the Sea Tac airport over the past year. I hope you enjoyed the beautiful artwork I shared today. Let me know what you think.
