Eskuz Esku means "hand to hand" in Basque
This hand-made ceramic, glass-tile and mirror mosaic is part of ESKUZ ESKU: 2 painted mural facades and the mosaicrunning along the base of both.

The mosaic develops the theme of hands that produce creatively, and that are tools for work. It adds the notion of communication to the mural group as a whole by using texts in various languages to transmit notions of neighborhood, peace, growth, etc... Texts are purposely left untranslated to encourage intercultural communication.
