Lilian Broca, mosaic, Queen Esther series, 2004-7


 ‘Created in classical Byzantine style but with a contemporary sensibility, Broca’s mosaics literally give light - and life - to the complex personality of Esther:  the Jewish queen of Persia who, through sheer courage and genius, rose from shy obscurity to become her people’s savior.’ from ‘The Hidden and the Revealed, The Queen Esther Mosaics of Lilian Broca’
