St Mary The Virgin Primary School, Cardiff

Although the school is church maintained, it has close links with two nearby mosques. The overall design of this mosaic was based on a window in one of the mosques, with details by a group of children who had recently arrived in the UK and spoke limited English.

It is part of the school's Islamic Garden, which won joint 1st prize in the Muslim News Awards for Excellence, 2004.

A series of 'upside down' faces were designed and painted by the children. These were cut out and fastened to the fence where they can be rotated.
