Default Neytiri mural with a message

I don't know if this has been posted here or not, but I thought I'd pass this along.



Unfortunately, the artist gave Neytiri one too many digits on her hands (), but this is cool nonetheless. I came across this during an image search online and I realized this was an actual outdoor photograph and not just a regular image! I clicked on the link to find that this was recently posted in March of this year! Just scroll down for a brief read about the mural. There's also a 5 minute time lapse video of the artist creating the mural as well. Love the mural, love the message:

Oh noes! It was an awesome page where an artist from India had painted a depiction of Neytiri holding a color swatch, and how it was a commentary about how we need to see each other past our frivolous differences, and how we need to come together as one as people. He used Neytiri's image because he wanted to depict beauty that was different from our own (humanity's), to show that beauty is found in all people. I really liked that page and the artist's message. I should have screencapped it.

Saksham Verma - The AVATAR Mural (Speed Art Video)





Quote:
Saksham Verma - The mural is a pop portrait of an Avatar tearing apart a beauty fairness scale. The society we live in has a stereotypical perspective of associating "beauty" with "fairness". This notion has been supported by many advertisements as well, which provide beauty treatments and offer fairness. I made the Avatar female creature "Ney-tiri" which is an exquisite epitome of elegance. Her colour itself makes a different race, a colour which is not even considered to be a placed in the "beauty grade scale" of our society. She is shown tearing the scale apart symbolizing the end and breaking this stereotype of beauty with race. Ones beauty is not marked by the colour of their skin and no such related grade scale can measure that.

Yes it is. I like it and I wish there was more AVATAR art like this out there. I'm hopeful that the sequels will spark a lot of creativity.
