A dragon is born in Burbank
Assisted by a crew calling itself the "mosaic mafia," and working out of a movie prop yard in Burbank, Los Angeles artist Jolino Beserra is breathing life into a 30-foot cement dragon.
The Trust for Public Land commissioned the artist to craft a mosaic play structure for Maywood Avenue Park, a park and playground we're in the process of creating in southeast Los Angeles.
She also shot a lovely photo essay documenting the painstaking progress. Click through some of our favorite images in the slideshow below.
