TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A vibrant lion was painted on a local business in the 12 Points area Monday morning.
Owners of Illumination Wellness hired a local artist to paint the mural to bring their new business to light. The artist chose a lion because it symbolizes leadership, courage, mobility and strength.
Artist Jerome Goff said that vibrant murals like his are exactly what the community needs to come together.
“And I’m grateful to be part of the twelve points project. I’ve done a little history diving and I guess there was a carnival around here at one point,” Goff said. “So, I think bringing back that fun, vibrant, revitalization is definitely what the community needs.”
Illumination Wellness is a yoga and wellness bar. It plans to have its grand opening Dec. 12.
