Peter Lawsons Mural Mosaics
Goldtower Central is paying homage to Charters Towers' history with the installation of three large-scale mosaic images of prominent Peter Lawson paintings, located on Pioneer Place.
The original painting of "Saturday Morning Gill st." (circa 1900) was inspired by the historical architecture and street scenes of the gold era. The art piece has now been transformed into 701,040 meticulously handmade 10mm square ceramic tiles, giving realism to the time of the century that it depicts. Two have been selected to be installed as one-of-kind mosaics on Pioneer Place, these can be viewed at any time and are free to visit.
