Monday Mural: Irie Lion

Infinite Artistry painted this mural in 2010 on the side of a liquor store just off International Blvd.  Couldn't find anymore information about this artist/business.  Wiki tells me that "irie" is connected to the Rastafarian movement and means feeling alright, powerful, or excellent.  This elegant lion has familiar Oakland landmarks in the background, including the now closed and defunct Bay Bridge.

  2. The pattern on the right must have a very tedious chore. The lion resembles Prince John in Disney's animated movie Robin Hood.
