Cuban artist Lidia Aguilera Sanchez created this mural featuring Yemaya, the mother of waters of the Santeria religion, in 2003. The mural was originally located across the street at Peter Pan Cleaners, but while the business owner had approved the mural, the property owner had not and demanded it be moved or painted over (which is peculiar since another mural was painted at Peter Pan Cleaners the same year). In November of 2003 the Kingfield Neighborhood Association paid $3,000 to move the mural to Peterson’s Flowers just west on 38th Street. Currently the mural is at Victor’s 1959 Cafe at 38th Street and Grand.
