Maria-Elena Martoglio

Although not classified as a polyptych this is one of four mosaics under the title "The Four Basic Elements". I've depicted the element of water inspired by Chinese medicine teachings.
Framed by a beautiful golden heart made with ceramics, glass, and porcelain, the water element has been created with stained glass and mirror. Water is an element that gives birth. It is nourishing and supportive. Water is the element of emotions and connections. But if overused it can be deadly. Water is life.
