in a Sofia parking lot

This is a mural to honour and celebrate, Sofia.  As to whether or not the city was named for a person is in some dispute so maybe this is Soifa personified.  On the far left is a lion, symbol of Bulgaria and the name of one of the Sofia bridges.

A close up of Sofia:

part of a larger mural, the head of a queen, supposed to be Sofia

The other bridge in Sofia is the Eagle Bridge, so an eagle appears at the other end of the mural.  Jan One is the signature by the eagle.

street art mural including an eagle head

There are two walls that abut this parking lot.  The other wall looks like this:

Chupa chups logo painted large on a wall in Sofia, exterior

On the top is a large advertisement for Chupa chups candy.  This lollipop was the creation of a Spanish company in the 1950’s and the name is a play on the Spanish word ‘chupar’ which means ‘to suck’.  The logo was designed by Salvador Dali.

The bottom painting is a mural by street artist Bozko.
