Post No Billy Goats

Murals are all over India, leaving few expanses of blank wall unpainted. The subject matter tends to be repetitive: political figures, lush landscapes or advertisements. If you're lucky, a wall surrounds an institution that offers its own set of images. Say, tanks and airplanes for a military compound.

At an elephant reserve, someone decided the walls were a good opportunity for an animal survey. Beyond the subject matter, what makes these images great is the accidental stylistic results, especially the cubist black bear and a yak with an incredible hair-do.
