In lak'ech (I am another yourself), on 23rd Street off Mission Street was designed and directed by Marta Ayala with guest muralist, Catalina Gonzalez, in 1998. The mural is dedicated to the community, serves as a seed of harmony, joy and peace "Armonîa y Paz".
The mural is to provide a window into the harmony of the universe and to be a symbol of forest preservation. A sleeping mountain symbolizes the potential we all have to take care of the earth, its water and animals. The dessert is the skin of the earth, the mother and father mountains are embraced by the medicine we call Peyote, and are the source of the waterfall. The cave symbolizes the mysteries of the depths of the earth. The 20 Mayan sprockets are to awaken our memory at a cellular level so we can remember our true origins and give us the ability to synchronize with cosmic beams without effort.
Having these images out in public provide a memory seed to ripen as a compassionate protector in those who view it.
For as long as this mural exists it will be a seed provider.
