  • Limón - Following my eyes up the sails of the tall ship mural I was surprised - left wondering where the top of the building went. The painting seemed planned with an unpredictable ending.

    Did the painter want to commemorate a specific event? Or like so much of our history only partly remembered. What battle ship is it with three decks of fire shooting out the cannon? What was the captain about to conquer?
