And we have a positive ID! Yes, this single panel is, in fact, a HUGE, wall filling mosaic, made up of tiny Peanuts strips. Some interesting facts. First, the photo mosaic is made up of, not square images, but highly rectangular ones. Thus, making a good map reproduction of the actual image will be MUCH harder than if single panels were used. The extended width creates, in essence, an anti-aliasing effect (for those of you with Photoshop inclinations). Could it be dealt with via a sophisticated image processing routine. Absolutely. Did they do it? I doubt it very much. The second fact is that the strips aren't unique. The artist chose a limited ste of them and felt free to duplicate. Makes total sense to do so. He simply needed to get a full range of grays and then use those to build up the mosaic.
And here's a closeup!
