Eduardo Kobra's Mount Rushmore mural in L.A...

I thought it was quite apt this Thanksgiving when I drove past this modern day interpretation of the famous American landmark, Mount Rushmore.

I've wanted to see this vibrant mural in person ever since I spied the artist, Eduardo Kobra's, homage to VJ Day wall mural in New York a few months ago.

The Mount Rushmore tribute was unveiled along La Brea Avenue near San Vicente Boulevard where it had been commissioned for this year's Independence Day.

The spectacular piece of work is such a burst of colour it's enough to brighten anyone's day as they drive or walk past.

I hope it makes you all smile today...

UPDATED: Here's another fabulous mural by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, this one featuring humanitarians and civil rights activists, Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, Jr. This colourful work of art can be found along Highland Avenue on the side of the LGBT Center's Youth Annex.
