Pomo Mural, Lakeport, CA
We were asked come up with a design for a mural inspired by the Pomo tribal history – both past and present – that thrives throughout Lake County, CA. We painted this in October 2019.
The Pomo are renowned for their basket weaving techniques. The patterns are a part of the landscape and the baskets are woven from the tule reeds that grow along the shores of Clear Lake. Even the canoes are woven from the reeds. The mural draws on those inspirations, weaving the patterns through the landscape, speaking to the practices of and honoring the women of the tribes, and the spiritual center point of Mt Konocti.
The mural is at the corner of 5th and Main Street and can be found here: Google Map Link
