The Chimera

Let's see… this chimera is made up of a combination lion and tiger with pistons and red wings. You guessed it: Detroit! There are people in the city who pass by every day and don't realize The Chimera represents the city's sports teams (you can find more city symbolism if you look closely). The largest mural in Michigan is being spray-painted by Kobie Solomon, with the support of Detroit Harmonie, on the Russell Building, which houses many art studios and vendors. If you pass through on I-75, keep an eye out for the Chimera! Link
