Surfing Madonna Turns Heads



    A surfing religious figure is turning heads in Encinitas.

    The stained glass piece mysteriously appeared recently under the train trestle on Encinitas Boulevard between Highway 101 and Vulcan Avenue in Encinitas according to our media partners the North County Times.

    "Save the Ocean" runs along the side of the mural but so far, no one has claimed responsibility for it.

    The mosaic may disappear just as quickly as it came to light, since it is an unauthorized use of public property.

    One local blog has been following the appearance of the piece, reporting that city officials may remove it and taking public comment - should it stay or go?

    One person commented on the Leucadia blog: "It's awesome. Far better than art the city pays thousands for - and it's gratis, with a good message yet," the person identified as Whitney said.
