|Since Indian Canyon Village has some of
its origins in the Ohlone culture, we offer here photographs
taken of a Ohlone Village mural painted on the wall of a freeway
underpass at the Main Street Bridge in Los Gatos, California.
The location is at the Main Street overpass on Highway 17, and
the actual site is the wall next to the Highway. The wall
is separated from the traffic by a steel fence. It is
necessary to park on Main Street and walk down a footpath to get
to the mural. A map showing the location of the mural can
be obtained by clicking
Two photographers took the pictures of the mural. Randy
Herrick, a friend of Indian Canyon, took several pictures of the
murals and has offered them for viewing on this site.
The webmaster, being inspired by Randy's work, went to the
location to get additional pictures. Since it was not
possible to capture the whole mural in one shot, he videotaped
the mural while sweeping the video camera from side to side.
Stitching the images in the video by computer provided a
composite picture of the whole mural which was otherwise
difficult to capture in one shot.
Permission to include these pictures has neither been
requested not obtained since it is not clear where to obtain such
permissions. However, both Randy and the webmaster of
Indian Canyon Village feel that this work of art should be viewed
and enjoyed by a wider audience, and respectfully thank and give
credit to the painters of this beautiful mural.
