Located at Wilson Alley, near the corner of Park Avenue and West Franklin Street in Baltimore‘s, Mount Vernon neighborhood, Jeff Huntington‘s “Here There Be a Dragon” is an enormous and striking mural that depicts a traditional Chinese dragon on one of side and a Conquering Lion of Judah on the other side. Both creatures are slithering their way in and out of their respective building’s windows.

Both symbols represent and honor the neighborhood’s past and present: over 30 years ago, the neighborhood was Baltimore’s Chinatown. Today, the neighborhood is home to a thriving Ethiopian community.
