The pictures form a coherent narrative from left to right, with the Virgin dressed in red, white, and blue with a banner reading "America"in the center. This is one of the best murals I've ever seen. Unfortunately, it was later damaged by graffiti, sun, and flaking or pulling off of a few large patches of paint.
