    OMG! Incredible mosaic!!

    AMAZING COCHRANE MURAL----- LOOK CLOSELY BY CLICKING ON ANY PART OF THE MURAL.

    For those not living in Canada, Cochrane is NW of Calgary, Alberta and east of Banff, in the foothills of the Rockies.
    This mural was unveiled last week at the Cochrane Ranch House.

    Each tile is one foot square, is its own individual picture and each is by a different artist.
    All of them together form this huge mural. You can click on each of the tiles to see them in detail.
    Check out, especially, the horse's eye.

    Click on any square that makes up the mural to see what the square really is.

    As suggested I clicked on the horse's eye.....wait....... What.....?
    I backed up and clicked the eye again. Amazing!! There's not an eye in sight!
    Nor are there fingers in the man's hand or lips in his mouth. What??
    This is astounding artistic creativity. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Oh now, that's just crazy wonderful. It's amazing how someone could look at all those separate images and put them together that way. Makes my head hurt just to think about it!

    That is worth a trip ( said by a person who doesn't like to go more than 15 milers from home and lives on the East Coast!)
