An overview shot of the "The California Princess" mural, a part of Sacramento's Wide Open Walls Art Festival. It is meant to resemble the famous Princess Leia of Star Wars. but instead, in the words of the artist, "California is popular, it's the quintessence of pop. It's famous all over the world for its cinema industry, its music, its sense of freedom. But, behind this mask of freedom and innovation, it has a dark side."

A California bear decorated the neck of the robot face. The bear too appeared to be a robot, but the flowers appeared real.

A red star was cut into the forehead of the robot's face. The nose was golden, as were the gears exposed inside the robot's jaw. The robots eyes were sunken with a tiny camera set back inside each hole.
