COMMUNITY WORK

"INNNER SELF"

This mural was developed by Kimberly Duran @5hmi & Bud Herrera @Thirds_Realm. It is location off of Grand & Calle Cuatro in Santa Ana California. Photography: Mathew Martinez @matty_slice

 

The Mural was created to inspire a sense of inner hope & peace. Mexican elders say Huitzilopochti guided the Aztec’s long migration through the valley of Mexico and thus the hummingbird is the symbol of strength in life's struggle to elevate consciousness- to follow your dreams.

There is a Native American legend that says, " If you have a secret wish, capture a butterfly and whisper your wish to it. Since butterflies cannot speak, your secret is safe in their keeping. Release the butterfly, and it will carry your wish to the Great Spirit, who alone knows the thoughts of butterflies. By setting the butterfly free, you are helping to restore the balance.
