Monday Mural and Through My Lens

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, July 6, 2019
This 12 X 35 feet mural, painted by MJ Torrecampo and Lujan Perez, honors our native American Indian heritage. Piominko and Tishominko (Tishomingo) were leaders of the Chickasaw Nation when United States citizens moved into the area in the late 1700s. Mississippi became a state in 1817. The Magnolia blooms represent Mississippi's state flower, and Tupelo is the crossroads for two major railroads, BNSF and GM&O. (The tree on the sidewalk is a Crepe Myrtle).

Tupelo was incorporated in 1870, and the arrow is a copy of the "First TVA City" sign. (Tupelo was the first city to receive electric power from the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1934).

Have a wonderful week!
