Original location - Ceramic Lunette - Wart Hog by Emmanuel Viviano
Emmanuel Viviano created these ceramic tile lunettes with funding from the WPA Federal Art Project.
Located at Nancy Hill School in Aurora IL, the four ceramic tile lunettes are signed by Emmanuel Vivianno. The four lunettes are: Deer, Dear and Fawn, Sheep and Wart Hog. They each measure approximately 2 feet by 4 feet.
In their original location, the lunettes were set in alcoves, located above water fountains on the first and second floor of the school. The school was scheduled to be torn down in the Summer of 2017 and the tiles were relocated to a new school building. Pictured are the four ceramic tile lunettes as they appear today, in the new school building.
