Button Mosaics - Index

Take a Tour of the Mosaics with Expanded Views

By clicking on any of the mosaic images in the following index, you will see a larger view of the mosaic. In order to capture the detail of these very large mosaic pictures, image sizes are used that may require scrolling. Also, image loading times may take several seconds. On several of the larger images, you may hover your mouse on the image to find an expanded view of a portion of the picture to see a sample of the individual buttons used. Pages with expanded views are annotated with hints on their location. Be sure to visit "The Last Supper" to see, up close, Engler's genius at creating people with buttons.
