La Bomba and Lady Santana


La Bomba and Lady Santana

This mural pays respect to the young men who have lost their life due to gang violence. The mural is composed of two images: La Bomba and Lady SanTana. La Bomba is a type of a low rider car favored by Mexican-Americans/ Chicano youth. The guiding principle of low-rider cars are bajito y suavecito: “low and slow.” On the sombrero of Lady SanTana it reads “SanTana;” Santa Ana is commonly pronounced as one word by long-term residents of the city.
