Long Description:
The unique murals depict scenes of food that come from the four corners of the globe, and the ways in which the food is transported to their final destination at the "Marina Safeway" store. Over the span of one year, John Garth placed more than 150,000 bits of fine, colored glass from the historic cities of Italy and mosaic tile from Japan to create the extra ordinary murals.
