Winter, Pecan, Mountain Lion

"Winter, Pecan, Mountain Lion" by San Antonio artist Christina Sosa Noriega is a mural paying tribute to the native plants and animals along with the seasonal migrations of the Coahuiltecan clans that populated this area for thousands of years. The artwork features two pecans with a repeating pattern of silhouetted mountain lions. The background is comprised of blue and purple stripes evoking winter. The mural draws inspiration from pecans, a highly valued food source for the native Coahuiltecans due to their low water, high energy content, and portability. The mountain lion inhabited the area in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The mountain lion is referred to by many names including cougar, panther, and puma. "Winter, Pecan, Mountain Lion" is part of the series “Four Seasons” located along Villamain Road at the Loop 410 these murals were created by four San Antonio artists and local nonprofit SMARTSA.
