Għajnsielm archpriest, Canon Frankie Bajada, blessed two mosaics by Team Mosaic Għajnsielem. The works feature flowers in Garden Street and sea-themed low walls at the belvedere above Xatt l-Aħmar. The team, headed by mosaicist Mary Portelli, met regularly over the past months to ensure that the renovation of the belvedere is finished in time. Being close to a popular diving site, the topic of the mosaic is the sea. The low wall on the cliff edge side has been transformed into a rolling wave while the planter on the western side depicts an underwater scene sporting fish and a diver.
Following calls by Għajnsielem council, white crockery was collected and broken into small pieces to create the sea foam, while the coloured tesserae were used for mosaic flowers that adorn a roundabout in Garden Street.
