The Mural at the American School in Japan

The original tile mosaic (they call it a mural) was made in 1963 by Pearl Mok. It was on an outside wall of the school's old theater. The theater was rebuilt and reopened in August 2006. The students, faculty, parents and alumni reconstructed the mural and had it placed on a front wall of the new Ricketson Theater. The mural now faces the street. Some tiles were replaced. The old tiles were made into keychains. They were given as gifts when people made donations to the school.
