Street Artist Gaia Brings the Aztec God of Fire to Culver City

As part of our continued coverage of the flurry of new mural activity at the Branded Arts building in Culver City, here are some pics of the new mural of the Xolotl, the Aztec god of fire, by street artist Gaia. The piece is entitled "Twin Cities."

According to the, the new mural "features a interpretation of Xolotl crossing the border between the twin cities of San Diego and Tijuana.  The cities are represented by stylized figures/hands bearing the colors of each city’s national colors. Riffing on the traditional dog-headed human version of the deity, Gaia’s interpretation features a large, muscular winged  body with a head that is at first glance all dog and on closer inspection bears both canine and human traits."

Here are some pics of Gaia working on the piece:
