Unity


The city of Hoi An, Vietnam was an important stop on the spice route from the 15th to 19th centuries. For that reason, you see a lot of outside influences in the architecture and decorative styles of the buildings in the old town. This painting shows three different cultures coming together, a message of unity that's still relevant today.

More murals can be found here. Photo taken in November 2016.
