Incredible stone Medusa! Covered with tattoos it seems unless that's the print on a dress.

Indrani said...

Wow! Great art work.

caite said...

Attention grabbing.

But I wouldn't want strolling down the alley with her looking at me in the dark. ;)

Life Ramblings said...

Self portrait?

Emm said...

Sailor: The earrings look heavy and don't match.

Sukhmandir Kaur: It does look like Medusa. After you mentioned this, I researched it and it is actually, Tonantsin, the mother of the Aztec gods.

Indrani: It's always a surprise and delight to venture somewhere and see something amazing.

caite: It is a little intimidating plus it is fairly large (7 ft. tall x 32 ft. wide)

Ihsan Khairir: I have not been to this San Francisco neighborhood in ages and came across it during a walking group meetup.

catsynth: I would not doubt it if you have seen this before. I think it is on 16th Street and Sanchez in San Francisco.

Rainfield61: She is quite the girl. The colors are so vibrant, I wonder if she glows at night.

Liz: Thanks for dropping by.

Jidhu Jose: Thanks for visiting.

Lina: It is an art piece of Tonantsin, the mother of the Aztec gods. The artist painted it back in 1991 and when the paint was starting to fade and the fence deteriorating, she created a new version of the same subject.

Life Ramblings: I hope you were able to get to sleep. Think about the less scary parts of the mural.

Ryan: Not a self-portrait, but of the Tonantsin, the mother of the Aztec gods. From what I read, the artist belongs to a Latin America choral group and an expert in pre-Columbian religious practices.

Emm: You guessed it. It's Aztec!
