Bok Ceramic Tile: Fish

At the top of Bok Tower are mosaic tile windows that encircle the carillon bells.  Each open-air window has a cast-iron filigree base that is covered with ceramic tiles.  The windows all have a Biblical theme.  The middle tile window with a balcony shows Adam and Eve with the serpent in the Garden of Eden.  The top tile windows show the Tree of Life, along with nesting birds, baboons, wood storks, and other wildlife.  These massive windows measure 35 feet tall by 10 feet wide.  The bottom tile windows show creatures that live in the sea.  The detail work on this tower is incredible!
