This mosaic piece was created for a charity event over 4 days in
Hong Kong. The picture depicts a hurdler leaping over obstacles
as a positive message to encourage Hong Kong citizens to strive
and move forward in the current economic bump.
Titled '齊心共同跨越障礙，發揮香港精神' in Chinese/Mandarin,
it translates as 'Let the spirit of Hong Kong radiate, unite as
one and overcome all obstacles'. This mosaic creation consists
over 64000 pieces of 1x1 plates (measures about 2.6m x 1.5m)
and was built with the collaborative effort of HKLUG members.

This mosaic piece will be auctioned off at the end of the event and
all collected proceeds will be donated to Suicide Prevention Services
(生命熱線) in Hong Kong. Apart from the mosaic picture, this event
would also be showcasing Nathan Sawaya and my creations (8
pieces each from both of us).
