See TQ2981 : The entrance to Tottenham Court Road tube station, Oxford Street, W1 and TQ2981 : The entrance to Tottenham Court Road tube station - Paolozzi mosaic.

The Central line has brighter, more flamboyant, designs than the Northern Line, where the mosaics are harsher and sparser and the forms are rectangular with the tessarae laid out in grids. See TQ2981 : Tottenham Court Road tube station - Paolozzi mosaic, Northern Line etc.
