Columbo butterfly


I put on a episode of Columbo (guest-starring William Shatner as a murderer-talk radio host), and got to work on a small butterfly mosaic this morning. This one features two plastic hands, some grey smalti tile and broken crockery. Columbo is great for mosaic-making. I enjoy having Peter Falk for company –  I stick tesserae in place as Columbo tells the killer what’s bothering him.


  1. Okay, that’s creepy, because though I never even watched Columbo (or practically any other TV series) we all know the tropes and tag lines from popular culture, and I just invoked the “one more thing” with an explicit reference to Columbo, about two minutes before coming in here and checking the mail. I can’t remember when I thought of it last.

Have your say...
