Long Description:
This stunning Ceramic mosaic, lies in front of the home of John & Mable Ringling, named Ca'D'Zan (House of John)

The Ringlings' dazzling 56-room palace on Sarasota Bay has been described as “the last of the Gilded Age mansions.”

The ceramic tile compass rose, features the signs of the Zodiac around its outer rim, along with the points of the Compass.

"The home of the circus king and his wife, a couple from humble mid-western origins, Ca’ d’Zan stands as a testament to the American Dream of the Roaring Twenties. Inspired by and designed in the Venetian Gothic style of the palazzos that ring the Venice canals, this dazzling palatial mansion perfectly captures the splendor and romance of the Italy the Ringlings so loved. To honor its owner, they named it Ca’ d’Zan, “House of John”, in the dialect of their beloved Venice." Text Source: (visit link)
