The tempera-paint work, which features a mother making pie with her children as her husband plays bridge, is a departure from murals on the landmark's first floor, many of which were painted by devotees of Mexican painter Diego Rivera. "Home Life" and other Depression-era murals were recently restored. The art on Coit Tower's second floor can only be seen on special tours.
