This wall mural is on the side of the Eisenhower Fellowships building in Philadelphia. The mural itself is pretty interesting; the items in the tree include things like a French horn, an hourglass, a scale, a sextant, a carpenter's T, and a book. The inscription reads "Only justice, fairness, cooperation and consideration can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace --Dwight D. Eisenhower".

An interesting mural, wonderfully bright against a more drab brick exterior. Similarly, a stunningly bright, cheery and hopeful quote by the notoriously drab Dwight Eisenhower!
One of the things I really like about Philly is the abundance of colorful murals - downtown they're almost everywhere, and it's a great method of bringing some life to the city.
Nice straight ahead framing, though perhaps a touch more contrast might bring out some of the detail in the tree section of the mural.
