Photo: "Unicorn Mural"

Last April, while exploring one of the buildings in a Virginia State Asylum, a friend and I noticed a small hint of color from underneath some peeling paint in one of the communal rooms. We knew it was a mural that had been covered, so we began to look for flat objects to scrape away the top layer of paint. After about an hour, this is what we uncovered, a unicorn mural that had been sketched with pencil and later painted over. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing whether or not this was done by a patient, but it certainly was a neat find.
