city murals

If you spend much time walking around the streets of Philadelphia (apologies to Bruce) you'll notice the murals that decorate the city.  They are part of an initiative called the Mural Arts Program ( and they really do bring a sense of community to the city--there are murals celebrating everything from Philly boxers to Old Blue Eyes to feminism.  

However, the mural that I pass every time I drive to Lowe's or Ikea confuses me.  It's the face of a child surrounded by what appear to be white clouds in a blue sky.  

A closer look, however, reveals that the clouds are actually cat heads.  Why?

Even more strange is the one two doors down of a woman shooting a basketball surrounded by purple squid.  I'll try to get a picture.
