Ave Maria ~ Hail Mary

Here’s another one of those incredible giant wheat pastes… spotted just around the corner from the last one (abandoned building on San Pablo near 35th street freeway overpass).  This is the biggest one yet, spanning at least 15 feet wide, and fashioned out of more than six 3-foot wide strips of paper.

“Ave Maria” is latin for “Hail Mary,” a traditional Catholic prayer asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary. Interesting…

Similar to the others, a bison is depicted with some type of bomber plane encasing (or replacing) its head.  But unlike the others, this one has more than four legs.  Hmmm….
