Finally, the Mural is Done!

Meet my kids! This is Russia, USA, Mexico, India, Africa, China, France, Holland, and Iran.In the backgrounds are St. Basil's cathedral (did you know those onion domes are called Kokoshnikis?), and of course, the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge...That's Chichen Itza behind little Paco and his Chihuahua...The Taj Majal, and Mt. Kilimanjaro...The Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower (do you know who built the Eiffel Tower? I'll send a free gift to whomever posts first...and didn't look it up!)Holland and her Tulip field and windmill...Iran (the owner's daughter here) with Persepolis and Cyrus the Great's Tomb.
This is the other really cool part I told you to expect. This globe houses the x-ray machine, and was the impetus for the whole "Children Around the World" theme.This was the fastest part, the whole thing took us 7 hours. Those little stick kids really crack me up!
I am so glad to be done. This mural took me far too long...48 hours of work ( I estimated around 30), but it was far less than if I hadn't had the assistance of my trusty intern, Allison.

So what do you think?
What would you name them?
Which one is your favorite?

Alexandre Gustave Eiffel was the designer. I am not sure if he actually helped build it. ;-)

Lindsey you are so talened. The mural looks fabulous. I hope I will see you and it when I come to visit Valerie in June.

Lindsey said...

Alright Melody! Did you know that or did you have to look it up? And yes, you will be seeing me for sure. Val mentioned it the other day and I wanted to make sure you were going to come to Bible Study, but we'll have to do something outside of that too!
