Description

This mural was directed by Susan Cervantes, Suaro Cervantes and Fred Alvarado. It was designed by 27 local participants of all ages who centered their themes around celebrating the spirit of the community.

Going from left to right, first there's a banner with the names of the Potrero Hill Health Center in English, Spanish and Chinese framed by a peace sign and a rainbow heart..

On the main mural wall, its left side centers around the children getting on the school bus and dreaming of their future graduation.

From the artists:
"At the top of this hill is an “all seeing eye” of hope and respect. A red tailed hawk carries the path of life towards the sun. In the foreground are maguey cactus, a canna flower and hummingbird, California poppies, sunflowers and nopal cactus. Behind the sunflowers is a pregnant woman practicing the “tree pose” with nurturing hands in a circle around her representing the 5 elements of fire, water, earth, wood and metal, the foundation for good health ad balance.

Around the mural is a border framing the mural with names of community heroes."

Finally, the wall covered with giant ladybugs have been decorated by handprints from the local community.
