This mural was painted on the northeast wall of the West Side Tattoo building in 2017 by Drake “Drastik” Gann. The building is directly across Colorado Blvd from Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

The artist wanted to paint a colorful scene that was generically spiritual and would appeal to the church members without overtly including specific religious iconography. The woman on the left evokes the feeling of Mary and of an angel. See the below photo for more details. (Source: conversation with the artist)
