Little Panda Hua Mei glass mosaic by Sue Betanzos
A miniature colorful mosaic inspired by the very special San Diego Zoo visitor Hua Mei
Hua Mei means China/USA in Chinese honoring the work of both countries for her to be born.
Hua Mei the panda cub was the perfect animal ambassador with her super cuteness. She charmed the visitors (me included!) with her antics.
Worth the long line waiting to see her and her brother.
A privilege that also inspired the award winning artwork for the Starbucks limited edition coffee mugs in partnership with the San Diego Zoo.
My illustration was chosen for their coffee travel mugs with a portion of the proceeds donated to the San Diego Zoo endangered animal fund.
