WalMart Merida

This is a picture of the entrance to WalMart in Merida, Mexico. I find this sculptural element to be really attractive and to be an interesting choice: WalMarts are ubiquitous, it would seem, and offer the same ideology around the world, pretty much, but of all the WalMarts I have been to, this is the first to present an individual identity. (This is the first WalMart I’ve been to in Mexico, but other ‘big box’ stores in Mexico I’ve seen seem to fall in line with their US counterparts–generic. I do realize that my experience is not exhaustive.) There is also an actual sculpture on the site.
