These eight mosaics represent glimpses of Texas Tech football throughout the years. Some of these are visions of fleeting moments such as a touchdown catch to win a monumental victory. Other glimpses are timeless, such as the 1925 team football portrait mosaic, the Masked Rider image, and the Matador Song. The artist portrays Tech’s traditions and emotions of glorious victories and heart wrenching defeat as a moment in time. This piece creates a permanent visual inspiration for past, current, and future Red Raiders.
