A former life and a current life - that is the dichotomy depicted in this mural. The woman on the right, adorned with jewelry and fancy clothing, gazes at the butterfly on the left, which represents her past as a prostitute and her freedom from that difficult way of life. The background imagery is reminiscent of the desert southwest.

Mauricio Ramirez currently works out of Chicago and paints murals, fine art, and commercial art.
