Nondescript but Elegant Mosaic

Today's mosaic is a simple and unexpected pleasure--something I happened upon as I drove off Hawthorne Blvd close to its southern end in Palos Verdes. A side road leads down to a Salvation Army Training College for Officers and the Peninsula Racquet Club. On the side of a building between these two disparate facilities, someone decided to indulge in a bit of artistic revelry.

My guess is that this mosaic reflects a more meaningful mosaic wall on the grounds, because I stumbled across this pdf later. Apparently a tiled Wall of Honor commemmorates people by adding a cross made of red and gray tiles, engraved with their names. The motifs and colors look similar.

That's all I have time for today, but I'll catch up later.
