A description of Eye of the Tiger Lily by the artist, Lisa Frost:

Do you know that Tiger Lilies represent wealth, positivity and pride? I have always loved how the petals of the lily curl and touch and almost smile. I love how in this mural, they work together and create energy. Much like that of this community! The center Tiger Lily has a special Tiger face. A Tiger represents strength, courage, bravery. Byron Tigers! Do you see the heart above the eye of the tiger? (There are lots of hearts in the mural...can you find them?) The Rock River runs and flows through it. Do you see it? 5 Stars shine above. The number 5 represents "doors of opportunity". The stars are actual structural pieces of the building. Can you find all five? There are also 5 Tiger Lilies. Doors of opportunity.

I am forever grateful to the Byron community who embraced my ART and my passion for uplifting others. I am grateful to my friend Dan who helped me, and to my 3 high school helpers who were there in the beginning, to the special folks who stopped by frequently, and the Sponsors!

30 gallons of paint and 50 brushes!

I hope you love it as much as I do!
