Today I continue my efforts to showcase the wonderful masterpiece that Lewis Lavoie created over three years that was unveiled on Presidents Day in Utah. 50 paintings that detail the chronological history of the United States and form the flag. This video gives you a quick snapshot of the stunning art in the mural.

The mural is truly remarkable. Each fold in the flag is so carefully detailed to fit into the paintings. Or should I see ...each painting magically makes a fold. How is it possible for a man to make a mural that looks like cloth BUT even more amazingly by doing so using 50 paintings that have a life of their own but together make a bigger picture. Go see the entire mural one piece at a time here at ASTOUNDING!!

Looking closer into the mural you will see what actually makes up the mural. Here are just a few paintings within the mural:

U.S. history captured in pictures. What is it they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words!" So how many words in this Mural?
