Graffiti mural on Gold Way

On Gold Way (a tiny back alley on the border of the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Oakland and Polish Hill), there's a pretty decrepit building with an incredible mural on its back. I've passed this building several times a week for 3 years, but until today, I never got a good look at it. It's really beautiful and impressive up close. Unfortunately the wall on which it's painted seems to be in the early stages of disintegrating.

Btw, sorry for the low light conditions. After 4 straight days of clouds and rain, I gave up on waiting for a sunny day.

Here are the pics (click any thumbnail for a larger version):
