Hec­tor Ybarra blesses a mu­ral Thurs­day on the Cherry Creek Trail in Den­ver. Brazil­ian mu­ral­ist Alexan­dre Orion re­turned for the bless­ing af­ter re­pair­ing the mu­rals that had been da­m­aged by graf­fiti van­dal­ism. Orion’s mu­ral de­picts Aztec, Inca and Navajo iconog­ra­phy and a boy and girl — in­spired by his chil­dren — wear­ing na­tive dress. The forced per­spec­tive of the mu­ral makes it ap­pear as though the chil­dren are gaz­ing at passers-by on the trail.
