I shot this photo during our last snow storm the end of March. A icy hill caused a detour or I would never have seen this red glazing ball. I liked the way the reflections played in the ball and the color stood out in the snow.

After an extensive web search I found the following information about this mural.
The mural entitled WORLD SOURCES OF FOOD was built in 1959
by John Garth and is located at
Marina Safeway Store, 15 Marina Blvd. between Buchanan and Laguna
This large four-panel mural mounted on the outside of the grocery store tells the story of how food is transported from around the world from farmers, fishermen, and animals, in a colorful montage-style design. The pixelated image pulls together to an almost photographic effect when viewed from a distance. The mural contains over 150,000 pieces of vitreous glass and tile from Italy and Japan. Mr. Garth worked on the mural over the span of one year.

Sixty butterflies were purchased by area corporations, merchants, artists and civic groups. The decorated butterflies have been placed in busy locations around the city. These three were at the mall. In May all the butterflies will be on display in one location and auctioned off.
