King of Kings Mural

There is a very interesting art project going on in Canada called King of Kings. It is a mural mosaic where each "tile" is a painting in and of itself. The overall picture will be of Jesus. Each tile is a historical ruler. The artist is Lewis Lavoie. You should go check it out at http://www.muralmosaic.com/King.html

This is one of my favorite tiles. She is Maria Theresa of Austria. I don't know that much about her. I just liked the painting. I am looking forward to seeing King David, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and King Uzziah when they are finished.
