ImageImage

This mural is painted on the outside wall of the Tuck Shop (Aussie Meat Pies) cafe in the Lower East Side, NYC.

Regarding the story of Tucker Box, here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

The Dog on the Tuckerbox is an Australian historical monument and tourist attraction, located at Snake Gully, five miles (8 km) from Gundagai, New South Wales. The dog section of the monument was cast in bronze by ‘Oliver’s Foundry’ Sydney and its base sculpted by Gundagai stonemason Frank Rusconi. It was unveiled by the then Prime Minister of Australia Joseph Lyons on 28 November 1932 as a tribute to pioneers. The statue was inspired by a bullock driver’s poem, Bullocky Bill, which celebrates the life of an allegorical driver’s dog that loyally guarded the man’s tuckerbox (Australian slang for lunch box) until death.
