This is a close up of the mural on the Women’s Building on San Francisco, it took the artists a year to complete. The full mural is below. from the women’s building website:
"The theme has many messages: the healing power of women’s wisdom over time, the contributions of women throughout history, and the making of history by women from all corners of the earth.
A few of the famous women included are Audre Lorde, Georgia O’Keefe, and Rigoberta Menchu. In addition, female icons such as Quan Yin, Yemaya, and Coyoxauqui lend a timeless and spiritual element to the design.”
