Monday Mural - Natural Mystic

Andy | Monday, November 28, 2011 | Best Blogger Tips

Artist: Javid Alibhai artist/mentor. Artists: Leo Lam; Juhyun (Jane) Oh; Faith Webster; Anthony Jamez (aj) Monohan. The father holding up the child is symbolic of the will of every parent for their child, to succeed in life. The kingdom in the sky represents an ideal, mystical dwelling for the family and their offspring to live in. The lion is the all-seeing guardian of this paradise. This lion symbolizes the beautiful struggle of surviving to achieve the goals we set out for ourselves. The naturalistic scene of the far-left side and the animals throughout were added for the many children in the community and to enhance the family-oriented feeling of the piece. This imaginative mural, merging Mother Nature and the magical kingdom of the sky was the inspiration for the title of the mural Natural Mystic, which is a classic Bob Marley song that has touched the hearts of young and old worldwide.
