Tucked in behind some tall reeds, the interplay of light and shadows across the flower petals, contrasted by the deep colors of the lily pads and the pond water, This water lily makes an exceptional compostition.
This unique artwork is a digital mosaic where the "tiles" or "stones" (tesserae or abaculus) appear to have a 3D look. The image appears to be a high quality photo of a complex and detailed mosaic. The arrangement of the apparent "stones" is such that they follow the contours of the lily and the pads and reinforce the shapes of the objects. They are not haphazardly placed. The light on the edge of each tile comes from the upper left of the image, similar to the direction from which the sunlight lights the flower.
