Looks like a mural that could be in Oakland.

Yeah, except for the Aboriginal flag incorporated into it :-). I think it's interesting how easily incorporated King's image is in something as unAmerican as this — and how so much Australian nationalism (of all sorts) looks to the US for its symbols and identity.

Interesting, I didn't realize that was the Aboriginal flag. I thought it the circle was just complementing the moon and the red represented the blood of Martin Luther King Jr.

Ah, Mz Liz, that's the earth, not the moon :-). But otherwise, that's a pretty attractive interpretation…
