This mural depicts Mother Earth (Tonanzin) and her struggle with humanity’s’ unbalanced use of her natural resources, and our growing carbon footprint resulting in the effects of global warming. Fire and water, symbols of balance and strength, have profoundly affected the ecosystems of Boulder and Colorado with physical and psychological displacement and loss. The Struggle of Tonanzin Colorado documents Boulder's pressing environmental realities; but through resilience, integration, and healing it inspires a Pan American spirit that reconciles peoples and places for a sustainable future.
