Greek lesson

A new mural by Austin artist Angel Quesada, known for his mural/signage work on the walls of the Mexic-Arte museum, graces the wall of the Austin State School  at 35th & Mopac. Finished on December 30th, the latex-over-brick serpent is Ouroboros, or Uroboros, or Oroborus, (it’s from the Greek, Ουροβόρος so you see how the spelling is open to interpretation) and either symbolizes a Jungian pre-ego "dawn state" or a never ending cycle. or primordial unity or something else circular, even if the wall is squashing it into more of a rectangle.
