Dan Plasma drew a tiger mural on this wall. Over time, other artists added to and covered it up. Dan Plasma returned and turned the cluttered mural into a war piece against the interlopers.

Many Styles Behind Parked Cars

The mural was painted on the side of the Pica Pica Restaurant and faced 15th Street. It was difficult to photograph because it was partly hidden behind parked cars. The mural itself was composed of many conflicting styles.

The leftmost part of the mural was in more of a graffiti-like style. That part rambled along the wall and under a series of windows.

A closer view of the tiger's face. It looked fierce and powerful.

Another shark swam above the hammerhead. This upper shark wore sunglasses and a lip ring. Its mouth was open and ready to eat a glowing insect.

A soft-shelled turtle swam near the tail of the upper shark. Just over the tail of the shark was the word, "Bye."

A bald ball-like creature rose from green smoke and carried a knife. That creature had wide eyes and and stitched shut mouth. It appeared to be ready to stab the tiger.
