Asu no Shinwa

This is a mural by Japanese artist Taro Okamoto that was placed in train station in Tokyo called Shibuya.The name of the mural is Asu no Shinwa or 'myth of tomorrow'. It is a depiction of the atomic explosions and was painted in Mexico City during the late 60's. It was painted for a hotel, but I guess the hotel did not work out. After losing the mural for a few years, it was found in storage just outside of Mexico City and restored.Shibuya station is it's new permanent home.
