This is #41 of the 100 life-sized murals painted by marine wildlife artist Wyland in cities around the world. The first time I saw it, I just thought that it fit well into the landscape of public art in downtown New London, the Whaling City. It wasn’t until a later visit that I realized that it was also part of a larger series of murals worldwide. Some have already been painted over or otherwise destroyed. The one in New London has been cared for and is in good condition. This one depicts several sperm whales. It is certainly worth a quick drive or walk by if you are in the downtown area, and should not be missed if you are someone who already appreciates the artist’s work.
