Mexican Coaster: Jungle Creature

Isabella Gardner herself spent hours assembling the nearly 2,000 painted and glazed tiles into the appealing pattern we see today on the walls of the Spanish Cloister. Her friend, the artist Dodge Macknight, bought the tiles for her in Mexico in 1909 from the Church of San Agustìn in Mexico.

This coaster, featuring one of the tile designs from Church of San Agustìn now located in the Museum's Spanish Cloister, is sure to be a utilitarian touchstone for your experience at the Gardner.

Other tile designs also available.

Tile edges are weathered as part of the design.
