"Mining and Forestry" (detail)
Thomas Laman painted these two egg tempera on canvas murals for the Eureka post office and courthouse, which was sold to a private entity in 2002. Previously, “Mining and Forestry” hung behind the judge’s bench, and “Water and Land” on the wall. The murals were subsequently transferred by the General Services Agency to the new federal courthouse in nearby McKinleyville, where construction began in 2013.
