Crafted by Mozaico, the artwork is made up of 390,000 individual hand-cut tiles.
Artwork, referencing one of The Beatles’ most recognisable songs, is paying tribute to the late John Lennon at Strawberry Field in Liverpool.
Created by Mozaico, a leading mosaic art producer, the piece draws inspiration from the Imagine mosaic in the Strawberry Fields memorial at Central Park, New York City. A whopping 6.4 meters in diameter – larger than its New York counterpart – the mosaic artwork was crafted over 16 consecutive weeks using 390,000 individual hand-cut tiles.
Chady Tawil, CEO at Mozaico, said:
“It’s been a pleasure working with The Salvation Army to pay tribute to John Lennon’s life, talent and creativity, while also reflecting the core virtues of peace, tranquility and love as a harmonious continuation of the charity’s mission.
“We hope the mosaic will become a new attraction as a part of Strawberry Field’s new bandstand, becoming a platform for musical and theatrical performances.”
Assembling the artwork by hand ensured the unmatched quality and durability of the design, which is essential for preserving its condition, given its installation in a public space.
Strawberry Field holds a special place in the hearts of music enthusiasts and fans of the iconic band, The Beatles.
The site gained fame through the eponymous song, “Strawberry Fields Forever”, and was originally a Salvation Army children’s home. It now stands as a vibrant visitor attraction.
It offers a mix of history, art, and inspiration, with interactive exhibitions showcasing The Beatles’ early lives and the impact of the song.
Visitors can explore the tranquil gardens, visit the Strawberry Field exhibition, and immerse themselves in the story behind this legendary place.
Strawberry Field is a must-visit destination for Beatles enthusiasts and music lovers alike, offering a unique and nostalgic experience in the heart of Liverpool.
