I happened by this mural last Saturday and was quite entranced by it! Love the way so much is worked into it and it's very well done. Worth popping by to see!

I'm out of town and can't wait to come back and see the new mural. It's great that the artist can recreate the Surfing Madonna experience in a new way while a permanent home is sought. Thanks for sharing!

"the Surfing Madonna has struggled to find a permanent home" Why don't they just pray about it?
