Long Description:
This complex work of art contains many overlapping themes depicting different indigenous cultures from Mexico. There are jungle plants and the staff of life, corn; there is a jungle cat and the American bald eagle; there are calls to worship and children chasing a pinata. It is more impressive seen close up than from across the street. The brick pillars of the building divide the mural into five sections physically but the art flows across the dividers. One final section (the first on the left) appears to not have been colored fully after it was outlined; it looks very pale compared to the other sections.
The artists and colorists are listed in extensive credits hiding amongst some of the foliage of the mural. It wasn't possible for me to make out all the names.
