Missing John Lennon psychedelic eye mosaic from Liverpool’s garden festival reunited with owners
A MOSAIC designed by John Lennon was reunited with its owners after being lost for more than two decades.
There are now hopes the Psychedelic Eye will return to the Beatle’s home city of Liverpool, from where it went missing in 1987.
The custom-made piece, which is constructed from more than 17,500 ceramic tiles each no bigger than a quarter of an inch square, was originally installed at the end of Lennon’s swimming pool in his mansion at Kenwood, Surrey, where the hits Yellow Submarine and Hey Jude were composed.
Lennon sold the house in 1968, and in 1982 it was sold to an anonymous Swedish businessman.http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpool-news/in-the-mix/2011/07/14/missing-john-lennon-mosaic-from-liverpool-s-garden-festival-reunited-with-owners-100252-29049811/
