Jesus Lizard on the Banana Channel
206" x 72"
Artwork and Photo Courtesy: Mark Nelson

The Art in Embassies Program has purchased an 18 foot mural from Mark Nelson to be included in the permanent art collection of the new U.S. Embassy of Panama. Mark, a product of both Panama Canal Zone schools and Panama schools, created this work after memories of fishing and watching the Jesus Lizards that dart over the water by the banks of the Panama Canal inlets; sanctuaries for schools of Peacock Bass.  

You can read more about Mark and his work at Gringolandia Studios.
