Surfing Madonna

UNION-TRIBUNE "The 10-foot-by-10-foot mosaic depicts Our Lady of Guadalupe on a surfboard with the words “Save the Ocean” down the side." BY JONATHAN HORN

'As three art conservationists explored how to remove the Surfing Madonna mosaic from under a train bridge in Encinitas on Tuesday, several passers-by gave them their passionate critiques.

'“What’s wrong with you, don’t do it! Get away from there, get out!” yelled the driver of a semitruck after he climbed out — while stopped at a green light, mind you.'
