Another one immortalized in mosaic.

Sorry; still on my mosaic binge. Attached is a lower (very much so) quality crop. Here's the full quality version.

Re: Alexandra....

Tried to mess up as little as possible.
Palms, my apologies, I used your HK as a starting point. Don't think I improved it.

Re: Alexandra....

Craig, thanks.
I borrowed Palms HK & played with it: increased contrast, aniso,added darkened crosshatch layer to add texture in some spots, background, added color. The color was supposed to be sepia, but after JPEG compression I ended up with blotches of red and grey.

The credit goes to Palms.

Couple more tries, Painter
