"Three Women Gathering at the Sea Shore," Harbor High School, Newport Beach, CA
These two mosaic murals made of unglazed colored body tile were “crafted from thousands of tiny tiles by Arthur Ames and his then-fiancee Jean Goodwin in 1937” (http://articles.latimes.com/2009/oct/14/local/me-murals14).
When the original building was torn down and rebuilt in 2007, these mosaic murals were saved and now rest in the wall of an entryway to the new building.
