Things that make you go hmmmm…

12 May

This mural graces the wall of our pediatrician’s office. Its pretty cool.  One of the doctors painted the mural on the walls originally, so I wonder if she did this.  Whoever did it, I love it…but it is, well, weird.  Look at some of the details from the mural:

Is that GOLLUM lurking behind the children frolicking in the pool in Dormont??  I believe it is.
See him drop the ring?

Remind me not to take my kids swimming there. I am NOT up to any more epic quests right now.

Gerkin Gothic.  Ummm….

I mean maybe the pickles have something to do with Heinz.   But it’s geographic location on the map doesn’t suggest that connection. Come to think of it, they are located rather near to Gollum and the kids in Dormont.

I’ve always said things got weird once you emerged from the Liberty Tubes.

And then there is this:

See what I mean?  Odd.  The rest of it is lovely though. Look at the butterflies coming out of Phipps for example.  Any way, this is for you unknown and slightly strange artist. I kind of dig your quirky additions to our region:

    I like the inclusion of the casino. And that Cookie Monster lives in Oakmont. I could look at this thing all day long. What is it that’s in Bloomfield?

      I think that is the welcome to little Italy sign. I can’t remember for sure, but that’s sort of what it reminds me of. I like the Warhol Marilyn and Soup can too.

      Yes, it was really the most pleasant wait for the pediatrician I’ve ever had.
