Things on walls, Part 2

More walls, more things on them.  Here's another one of IAGO's murals.  This one is on the patio where I have my Spanish class.

Here's a wall with a political message for us all. I think you'd translate his as "To leave the struggle is to begin to die." Or, maybe "to stop struggling is to begin to die." Anyway, you get the idea.

A print on a wall. Oaxaca is a center of printmaking. There are dozens of printmaking studios, and people like to share their work publicly. All three of us are learning printmaking, but more about that in another post.

I think Gil Scott-Heron would be happy to know that people still remember this song and have translated it into Spanish.  The revolution will not be televised!

Just a ceramic sun on a street corner.

And, just a nice design -- maybe Aztec, maybe Zapotec, but clearly a design that people have been drawing and painting for hundreds of years.


  1. The last design looks a lot like the designs at Mitla, so I would go with Zapotec, or possibly Mixtec.
