A NEW MOSAIC was unveiled Sunday at the shrine of Our Lady of Knock in Ireland. The mosaic, illustrated by well-known Irish artist PJ Lynch, depicts in incredible detail the 1879 Apparition, as described by the 15 official witnesses. It has been crafted by a team of mosaic artisans of Travisanutto Mosaics. The artisans, from Spilimbergo, near Venice, Italy, worked on the mosaic for eight months in their workshop before transporting it to Knock in sections during January. A team of artisans came to Knock to install the huge artwork, which measures 14 metres x 14 meters (46 feet by 46 feet).
