STREET SIGNS - Lotus and Heart Tree

I used to pass these two murals that are painted on a set of garage doors that sit side by side at 1444 Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park every morning and get lost in their imagery. The lotus piece sits on the left and depicts a set of hands holding the L.A. skyline above the flowers that have special meaning to Echo Park residents (see: Echo Park Lake). The other door is covered in pink and purple hues, with a tree – having surgery performed on its damaged heart – dominating a barren landscape.
