Little Red Lizards




If you can figure out why we have these odd lizardoid paintings on the pillars of a local underpass, on the way to I-95, your guess is as good as mine.

It doesn't seem like graffiti, so correct me if I am wrong, but I do believe we tax payers probably forked out for this...

That's City of Miami for you.

  • Lizards??? I see crucifixes on top of carrots (well, could be mandrakes instead of carrots ;). Lizards is too fantastic even for me.

    Mandrakes! My grandmother had this home remedy for rheumatism which featured mandrake. ;)

    I was looking and looking at the photo again, Elko, and I just don't know what they are supposed to represent.

    Notice that they have numbers next to each painting.

    And they are not quite lizards, nor indeed, are they quite red (more like magenta).

    Not to mention their not 'little' either!

    Maybe they're manatees? Eh.

  • I almost enjoyed the shout-out enough to ignore the misspelling of "lizardoid".

    Not exactly unartistic. It's got something, but it IS rather talentless all the same.

    A bit like Andy Warhol.

  • "lizardoid".

    LIZARDOID?? Is this really right?

    Ah well, I changed it. Can't be on the wrong side of Mr. Charles Johnson. ;)
