Monday Mural: drumming shaman

This is only one section of a large mural on the side of a Smart & Final warehouse in East Oakland.  As this section suggests, the mural illustrates scenes of Latino culture from several countries.  I'm assuming we're observing a shamanic ceremony that bridges the corporal world with the spiritual.  I have to hand it to Smart & Final for permitting the use of their walls for this vast mural.  Unfortunately, I could not find a title or signature.

  5. Interesting mural. I love the detail. I am sometimes amazed at what people can do with a can of spray paint.

  14. Wow! The colors are stunning, and it is somehow comforting that there is no evidence of "tagging" on this creative mural.
