Monday Mural: Aztec echos

Found in East Oakland, I think this mural's abstract quality has roots in Aztec iconography.  I've seen circles and scrolls like these on codex drawings in Mexico.  The chrysanthemums remind me of flowers on the Days of the Dead ofrendas.  Painted by Corazon and Chamuco.  I find the shades of gray with a touch of color very pleasing but it may not be to everyone's taste.

  2. I like the flowers, especially, the one with the red outline. I'm glad you gave an explanation as without that it wouldn't have meant much to me

  7. I'm so glad you commented on Greensboro Daily Photo. It is my understanding that there isn't a direct link and it isn't easy. I don't really have the technology skill to figure it out. Now I know where I can come to join Mural Monday! The mural craze has hit Greensboro! We used not to have any, now they are everywhere.
