Whimsical mosaic work

I went for a long walk earlier today with a tourist friend. One of the places we came across was HortPark, which I will surely write in detail one day soon as it’s such a gorgeous surprise. But first I’d like to put pictures here of this beautiful mosaic wall, located near the entrance.

What I really like about it is how the illustration depicted, which looks like something from a children’s book, is presented with so many mirror tiles. I would expect the glamorous sparkle of these tiles to be more on a stylishly modern work. But for this kind of illustration style, it gives the otherwise quietly pretty scene a surreal quality in a startlingly unexpected, and wonderfully playful way.

And I really like the cluster of flowers below the glass panel, simply because it makes me think of a painting by Gustav Klimt, one of my favourite artists.
