Long Description:
This mural is based on the start of the story of Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving.

"One day, Rip wanders off into the woods to escape his nagging wife. Hearing thunder, he unwittingly follows the ghosts of Henry Hudson's men deep into the wilderness. As the men play nine-pins, Rip imbibes a "magic potion" - quietly falling into a deep sleep. He wakens 20 years later..."

The ghosts of Hudson's men are in blue. They are playing the popular pre-Revolutionary War game of nine pin. Rip is holding the jug with the "magic potion". His dog Wolf is below and to his right. The apple tree is where Rip falls asleep for 20 years.
