The finished work in situ on a wall opposite the restaurant: Meson la Almazara
Detail:women putting olives in sack
Detail: central woman gathering olives. This blue is fragile and lots of it must have come off when the tile was put into the glaze. The answer I think is to mix the colour with gum arabic.
Detail: men beating the tree
Detail: woman on right gathering olives
