Anchorage Murals #1

Sept. 19, 2009 - Disembarking onto solid ground, never mind a case of vertigo that makes it feel like walking on rough water.  These murals are from Downtown Anchorage, AK.

Down an alley, I found this mural, which occupies a corner and two sides of a smoked salmon establishment. The door to the log cabin is actually the door to the Twilight Zone.

Detail: Native Alaskan Fishing

Robert Wyland paints lifesize  murals of whales and ocean life. This detail from The Whaling Wall Mural that is painted on a JC Penney building:

See the Wyland Murals List at Wikipedia, or the Official Wyland Website.
