The calming mural, depicting seals and various species of whales, isn't exactly a must-see for Anchorage visitors, but viewing the painting can easily be incorporated when exploring downtown. It's across the street from the 'Town Square' park, and is housed in the shopping district where many will end up when hunting for souvenirs.

The mural was definitely painted properly- it's held up well since it originally adorned JC Penny's west wall in 1994. It's the only 'Whaling Wall' by the artist Wyland that's ever been painted in the state of Alaska.

If this is considered an attraction...there really is no point about even caring about this "wall" its just a painting?....not much of an attraction...but pretty I guess?
