Moroccan mosaic tile work by Daniel Gilbey, This looks like one piece of art that Emily would create. I say this because she likes the patterns Muslim artwork. She told Amir she loves Moroccan tiles , everything that's in a Matisse.
An idea to fix a broken tile area. Don't tear out the wall of tile, make light of it! Caulk the broken/missing tile to waterproof, then add an air fern (kitchen backsplash) or a fake plant (shower or tub area).
