Monday Mural: Won Kee Supermarket

Walking about Chinatown, this mural caught my eye because it's so different.  Surrounded by a multitude of dragon images, kung fu masters, and charming portraits of women, this one seems out of place.  It seems gentle and sedate among the more energetic murals.  Is it a guardian dog?  A tiger?  A zodiac symbol?  I don't know; you tell me.  Didn't see a signature.

Monday Mural: the mighty pen

Saw this one while driving down Telegraph Avenue.  It took me the longest time to figure out what was in the hand.  I thought, sword?  gun?  Finally I realized it was a ballpoint pen.  Duh.  The stop sign says "Stop gentrification and speak up."  Gentrification in the Bay Area has driven real estate prices sky high so working stiffs are having real trouble finding housing either to buy or rent.

Monday Mural: jump on in

This wonderful mosaic mural decorates a local public pool.  On the other side of the stairway is another mosaic of a girl jumping into the pool.  I don't know for sure, but the murals look like they are based on black and white photographs.  A real change from the more typical aquarium decoration you see around pools.  Sorry, once again I have no attribution for the artist
