This could be considered religious, because of the cathedral, but the way it is presented makes it seem more like it is acting more as a civic landmark, rather than a particularly religious building.
Very strong use of perspective and depth, which is somewhat unusual.

This is the final day of our focus on religiously themed truck murals, and maybe the start of the “fever dream” series. The mural identifies the scene on the left side of the tailgate is in Tanhuato de Guerrero, which we can find with street view,.
The woman that is having some difficulty with her clothes draws attention from the most interesting part of the piece, which is the flaming overturned car behind the truck. There’s probably a story there.
The mural does a nice job of including the rest of the truck’s paint work and body modifications.

Another truck that has a mural of itself that I see once in a while.
This truck has been modified in other ways and the mural depicts the modifications. This seems to 1) encourage the owner into putting an end to their modifications, 2) commit to changing the mural to reflect further modifications, or 3) allow the mural become monument to a younger version of the truck.
