Time To Wake Up

“Time to Wake Up” is the second Shaun Burner mural we’ve featured. In an interview with Submerge magazine, the artist shared the mural’s meaning: “The open hand with the light coming out [signifies] letting go and the clenched fist with the dark oozing out is holding on. . . The diamond from the third eye for the crown Chakra and also in western culture, the diamond is revered as such a precious gem when the real gem is the mind.”

Having no prior knowledge of the mural’s meaning, I was drawn to the intricacy of the henna scrollwork and strong geometrics. (As even casual readers know, I am mad for patterns.)

If you’re in Sacramento, stop by this mural on the side of the Royal Market at 17th and T and appreciate it for simply its aesthetics or for its deeper meaning.
