Location: 10th Avenue just north of 28th street on the East side.
Details: Sorry, but the signature on this mural is stylized and we
can't be sure of the artist's name. Colored and etched tile on
concrete block wall.
The Southwest is known for petroglyphs, and this wall in South
Tucson is evocative of some in the local area (you can find examples of
Bighorn sheep at Signal Hill in Saguaro National Park). Since
petroglyphs are often enigmatic, I like to think of them as thoughts
traveling through time. The ancient ones are trying to tell us
something, we just don't understand what they are saying. When I see
this wall, I smile; when I see petroglyphs, I smile. While I may not
understand all that this artist is saying, I do know that, like the
ancient ones, it's something good.
