That is an impressive amount of symbolism. I especially like the Department of Homeland Security logo surrounded by the Amazon smileys.

Apparently the work has been there a few months, but it was new to me. (I don't get to UNH as much as I used to.) I was really hoping this was a student project, but (sigh) no, it's the product of professional artist Michael Menchaca. So I assume UNH shoveled a bunch of cash in his direction. More Mechaca info (and video) here (Trigger warning: tedious political content may spoil your enjoyment of the mural.)
