The Mosaic Tardis – the most wondrously beautiful box

This is the story of two girls, Robin M and Erin U. They live far apart and were looking for a more convenient way to visit each other. Then for Erin’s birthday, Robin built a special Mosaic box that traveled through Time And Relative Dimension In Space. She constructed the box from hand, using wood and grout and glass. Her hands turned midnight blue from the grout dye and people mistook her for a druid. But no! Robin was no druid. She was the mystical engineer, designer and pilot of the most wondrously beautiful box the world would know – The Mosaic TARDIS. Erin was delighted!

One of the best things about owning your own blog is that you can put whatever you want on it. Underwords is primarily a popular fiction literary blog. However, I wanted to share The Mosaic TARDIS with you that my friend Robin and I have entered into the contest – and we could use your votes!

For my 40th birthday, Robin built the most amazing present ever – The Mosaic TARDIS. By sheer chance or perhaps fate, some may call it Doctor Who obsession, I discovered the contest sponsored by BBC America and Doctor Who.

Well, Robin and I put our heads together and decided to enter. I took pictures. Robin wrote descriptions of how she build the Tardis.

We flew The Mosaic TARDIS to an “interesting” location. Since we couldn’t lock in on the Titanic, we chose the U.S.S. Constitution.

Then we compiled everything into a video, which you can see below and entered The Mosaic TARDIS into the contest.

Here are some photos of the Tardis as it flew around the Charlestown Navy Yard.

The sailors on board were very excited that a miniature TARDIS showed up instead of another gnome.
