23 of May was the big day for Julong Garden community. The dragon mosaic installation began.
The two local masons and their skills where impressive – they never installed a mosaic before and did this one with great diligence and calm despite the many spectators. I need to rely on the knowledge of these local craftsmen for the choice of cements as I have no experience with building material here in the tricky climate of Beijing with super hot and humid summers and frosty and dry winters. As I can only talk to them via a translation app trust was needed the more.
Before installing they spend a weekend mending the rather depilated air vent structure so the mosaic could be installed.
