Monday Mural: the short arc between life and death

Found this massive mural while walking around downtown.  Zio Ziegler has been previously featured here.  He is an incredibly prolific artist with, what seems to me, a feverish mind.  I could not find an official name for the mural.  What would you call it?

The content of this mural is so complex, it's hard to take it in.  And the sheer scale of his murals is quite impressive.  This one is on a wall of the Howden building, previously shown here.  I think the pattern behind the figures is a nod to the building's original tile business.

  4. Only the author can know which is the correct name. It is an impressive mural which required a lot of work. I admire his work, but it gives me the creeps.
