In the Clouds, done in Speak Cryptic’s trademark black and white style, is an interweaving of flowers and patterns found on sari. Chrysanthemums, jasmine flowers, marigolds and orchids are some of the flowers found in garlands, and flowers are a symbol of strength and purity in the Indian culture. The sari, with various intricate designs and patterns, is said to be one of the most graceful dresses of women. A combination of two distinct elements of Indian culture, In the Clouds is a mural that adds a fine, decorative touch to the Park 22 Hotel.
