Heroes

 

I've had these photos of this mural in my files for a year or two now.  I was hoping I could find some information about it and the artist or artists involved.  But I've had no luck.  So it's time to post these photos anyway.  I located this mural in one of our older historic districts in south Phoenix.  It's a long mural and depicts portraits of a special people.  Unfortunately I don't recognize the person in this first section.

This second section features Mohammed Ali and Mother Theresa.

In this section we see Ghandi and Frida Kahlo.


In this last section is Cesar Chavez.  

Taking part in Monday Murals.

I am impressed with by this mural. It is interesting how the artist included nature with the celebrities.

So nicely done Sharon, it's always a bit of a shame when the artist's name can't be seen, would be nice to give them the credit ✨

I don't recognize the first one either, but I recognized the others as well.

How interesting. I especially like the beehive between Mother Theresa and Muhammad Ali.

That is so well done, Sharon! Hopefully someone will know who that first woman is.

The choice of celebrities seems rather inexplicable. I can't see much overall connection among the whole lot of them. However, it's a nicely done mural from a decorative point of view. Good find!

I think the sky might be even more impressive than the mural.

An excellent way to reflect on someone and have a happy thought for the day.

This is beautiful. I like how your eye flows from one person to the next because of the nature inspired art in between each person.

Someone, whoever the artist is has done really well with it.
