The Birds


I parked my car in a small downtown parking lot near an art gallery I was going to visit and I saw all these birds flying off in one direction.


I walked closer to get another look but because of another wall abutting this wall, I couldn't see any significance to the mural.


When I walked around the wall to toward the front of the gallery, I saw this little red-headed fellow with his watering can that seemed to turn into a large quantity of birds.  The quote inside the box under the little boy doesn't give me any clues either.  It's a quote by Mother Teresa that says:  "At the end of life, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done.  We will be judged by "I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was naked, and you clothed me.  I was homeless and you took me in."

Tomorrow I'll show you what that funny looking thing to the left of the above photo is.

The visual impact of seeing the amount of birds is very striking.

A fine mural, I like it, Sharon. And I wonder how much time the artist needed to paint all those birds... :)

Steve Reed said...

Well, it's a nice artwork and certainly a good message!

At first I thought it was actually a flock of birds. What a sweet mural.

Curious.

Those words did not come from Mother Teresa or any other mother; they came from Jesus. They were meant to be a warning to the rich and to those who don't care about other people. Jesus was saying your religion isn't going to save you; your beliefs are not going to save you. What you do for others is your only hope.

Not the Republican platform!

It certainly is a creative way to illustrate the quote.
