Monday Mural: California grizzly

I found this mural by Roger Peet in the Laurel District in East Oakland.  Although the grizzly bear is on the California flag, grizzlies no longer can be found in the state.  It and a similar mural on a different building are sponsored by the Center for Biological Diversity, the city, and local residents and businesses.  As you can see, it's massive and mystical.  Perhaps the stars are a nod to the constellation Ursa Major.  Because it is by a freeway exit, it is also a very cool entrance to the Laurel District.

  1. What an impressive bear, the opposite of Ursa Major - not a bear seen in the sky but the universe seen in a bear. Awesome!

  2. Looks fabulous and I like the sky and stars painted on the bear's body. Hope to be a worthy host, thanks C.
