Drinking Fountain Mosaic, Timberline Lodge - click on photo for larger image.
This tile mosaic called "Spring on the Mountain" is just inside the ground floor doors of the Lodge. It is sometimes called the "drinking fountain mural". It features local plants and animals found in the area and it was designed by Tom Laman and Virginia Darce. Timberline Lodge is filled with original art work that was commissioned specifically for this building. I'll show you a few that are typical as we go through the virtual tour. In many ways Timberline is as much a museum (it even has a curator on staff) as it is a hotel. While most of the artwork dates to the building of the lodge, this is a continuing collection with new pieces that fit with the Pacific Northwest theme being added when appropriate and available.
