Should Morbid Paintings Line the Walls of Denver International Airport
DENVER, CO – Horrific murals line the walls of Denver International Airport, however most travelers fail to notice the Denver Airport Paintings or their sinister meanings. Upon closer look one must wonder why such artwork is on display in a public place such as an International Airport?
The images shown in this article are far from soothing and came as a cost to tax payers at around $100,000.
Order of Chaos
This mural has me at a loss for words, titled “Order of Chaos” could this be a sign of times to come? We see a military figure that resembles a German SS soldier wearing a gas mask with a machine gun in one hand and a sword stabbing a dove in the other. The dove, a symbol that has been used in post-war peace movements shown being stabbed doesn’t sit well with this author, not sure about you?
-On the left side of the mural is a mother holding a dead baby with hundreds of other mothers lined up doing the same.
-In the right lower corner (you can barely see it in the photo) is a piece of paper containing an actual poem written Hama Herchenberg a 14 year old who died in a Nazi concentration camp. The letter is, a chilling reminder of events that happened less then 100 years ago:
but I am no more a child for I have known fear
I have learned to hate how tragic, then, is youth
which lives with enemies, with gallows ropes.
Yet, I still believe I only sleep today. that I’ll wake up,
a child again, and start to laugh and play.
Hama Herchenberg, 14 years old..died December 18, 1943
Auschwitz Concentration camp”.
Denver Airport Murals
Aside from the forest and city burning, children laying in coffins and animals that seem to be extinct these seems to be nice pieces of artwork created by Leo Tanguma a Chicano muralist.
