The Bikgoon mural occupied almost an entire wall at 300 Grant Avenue. And part of a wall under a folded-up fire escape ladder.

A closer view of the mural revealed two faces, and a video camera, staring out at the street.

Another closer view of the upper-right corner of the mural. A person sat on a wedge shaped bed. A ladder leaned against an overhead lamp. And underwear hung from a hanger.

A bent-over person lifted a suitcase off of a rock by using a stick. Below that person, were the words, "I ♥ SF."

A closer view of a woman in a corridor with stairs behind. The woman's head was on her body backwards.

An even closer view of a frog whose eyes were fire stand pipes with caps on their ends.
