Faces From The Past
One of the art projects to be found at the Evergreen Brick Works is a series of really large faces high on the inside walls of the kiln house. The faces are those of some of the men who worked at the brick works when it was a brick works and they have been broken up into pieces the exact size of a brick and applied to the wall probably with wheat paste. Many of them are starting to fall off but this particular face is fairly intact although you can see a few pieces are loosening up. I imagine the men must have been thrilled to see these portraits!

Looks like a puzzle. I love it! Happy Friday.
What a great way to honor the workers.
The artistry is really good! What a neat find. :)
What a great idea, and a great honor.
Very clever, a great idea.
Brilliant! I didn't realise Meatloaf once worked at the brick works though ;-)
Too bad they are beginning to fall apart. The work is well done.
This is amazing. And maybe a little creepy.
he looks like the singer, meatloaf!
It's an unusual, but effective use of the wall.
That is so well done.
That's really quite incredible; I've never heard of such a thing. And I would hope that the men thought it a great honor.
This is a wonderful art project, RedPat. It is not like any I can remember. How often are regular workers celebrated in this way?
It's a great portrait on the wall ... yes it is a great pride appear there, where they have worked.
Have a great weekend.
The faces must be quite haunting in a way Pat..
It would be nice if they would restore them.
A wonderful idea! It reminds me of the INSIDE OUT global project.
Both your find and your posting.
