    Hey Tom, this mural I snatched up in Portsmouth, Ohio looks like the same artist also; he must be some kind of three-dimensional master or something.

    That's really cool - I wonder if these guys (or gals) sign their work somewhere on their creations. Have you ever noticed?

    Edit - oh, I see on your previous post that they do indeed sign sometimes. Wonder if that's on all of them.

    Usually they are signed somewhere. I don't always look for it, so I can't say if any are not.

    Another close up shot of the Circleville, Ohio mural.

    Note the pumpkin theme of the mural, which may not have been noticed before. This is significant because Circleville is known for a massive pumpkin festival every year; one of the largest festivals in the country, and it dates back to the very early 1900's. If memory serves me - 1903.

    Also notable about Circleville, and fitting of the name, is the fact that the city was originally layed out in a circular manner due to being built on pre-existing circular ancient Indian effigy mounds.

    Maybe that "creepiness" that kickstandsup detected in the little girl was some sort of possession due to the effigy mounds.

    Eventually the town was reconfigured into a traditional grid layout.

    I know ... it's faded something awful. The pale yellow section at the top reads Cherokee Strip Land Run 1893. The faded orange section beneath it is "Unassigned Lands."
