Inside the Savannah Visitor Center

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 17 December 2019 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Mural spotted inside Savannah, Georgia's Visitor Center. The central image on the mural is the Central of Georgia Railroad buildings that used to take up most of this area. Several of them still exist and are museums including the building where this mural is. Scattered around the edges of the mural are famous people from Savannah's rich history.

On the right lower corner are a woman and young girl in girl scout uniforms. Savannah is the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts in the US. In the upper right hand corner is Eli Whitney who invented his cotton gin while at a plantation in the Savannah area. Next to him is his invention. Also in the upper right hand corner is the S.S. Savannah, the first Steamship to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

In the lower left corner are James Oglethorpe, the founder of Savannah and Georgia. Next to him is Tomo-chi-chi the Native American who signed a treaty with Oglethorpe for the land for Savannah. Next to him is Mary Musgrove, who interpreted for the two men. In the upper left corner is Casimir Pulaski who was a Polish General in the US Revolutionary War and was killed in the attempt to retake Savannah from the British.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

a beautiful mural with fine color and detail. You have deviated from your usual perfect perspective, and the inclusion of random people is interesting except for the "half-people" on each edge.
