This mural can be found off Park Blvd. near Lake Merritt. It has an interesting mixture of elements from multiple cultures. I like the dragon with the brush in his mouth. It may be a reference to the crew that painted it. If Desi reads this, he'll set me straight. The figure to the right reminds me of Javanese iconography, especially with the kris in his hand. The central face is a mash up of different cultural styles but especially makes me think Aztec meets Rorschach. All in all, a composition that makes you pay attention.
