San Francisco's Mission District has some of the world's best murals, particularly along Balmy and Clarion Alleys. Each time I visit the area there are always changes in these modern-day frescos - never static. Some murals have lasted over time while others were short-lived. Faces are like magnets, grabbing my attention over most other subjects. This mural is about a mystical Goddess, looking down upon us mortals, protecting us as a mother would.
