Is it art or just NCR pads? Is it religion? Graffiti, message, or what the heck is the Surfing Madonna mosaic doing under a train trestle along busy highway 101 and Vulcan Avenue in Encinitas, Ca.
One thing is certain folks, this 10×10 foot stained-glass mosaic tile is causing every type of reaction from consternation to acclimation along the busy road in one of America’s leading, laid-back surfing communities, about 20 miles north of San Diego.
The deal is removing this artwork or sight pollution depending on your view is not going to be easy. The anonymous artist or artists painstakingly superglued the piece to the trestle. It will be a pain to take down, according to experts.
The price tag for this piece of something starts at $2,000. That is how much the Encinitas City Council unanimously allocated to study how best to remove the Surfing Madonna.
