Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer of the Shiba Inu ecosystem, has stirred reactions among SHIB holders with his recent conspiracy theory post on the X (formerly Twitter) platform.

Per the tweet posted on February 27, Kusama called on Shiba Inu community members to shed light on the mysterious murals displayed at Denver International Airport (DIA) in the United States.

The enigmatic developer stated that he has been hearing about the work of art and would love to know more about it.

So I've heard about these weird murals in the #Denver Airport. Can anyone tell me how to find it? I have to see it for myself.

Controversial Murals at DIA

Notably, the iconic murals have been drawing attention from people around the world since 1995, when they were first installed at the airport.

Created by Leo Tanguma, the two murals were installed in the east and west baggage claims at the outer part of the airport’s Great Hall. One of the murals is named “Children of the World Dream of Peace” and is located on the east side of the baggage claim, while the second, titled “In Peace and Harmony with Nature,” was installed on the west side.

As travelers wait to collect their luggage, the paintings tell a different story, leaving them to interpret the meaning. Specifically, the painting “Children of the World Dream of Peace” depicts a theme of war vs. peace. On the other hand, the painting “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” symbolizes environmental healing vs. environmental destruction.

Despite the storyline of each mural ending in world peace, travelers, especially conspiracy theorists, have been focused on the destruction aspect of the painting.

Some conspiracy theories about the murals include signs of “new world order (NWO),” Illuminati and Nazi affiliation, among others. In the meantime, the airport staff has moved the “Children of the World Dream of Peace” mural to storage due to renovation.

Shiba Inu Community Reacts

It is unclear whether it was the conspiracy theories behind the paintings that attracted Kusama’s attention. However, his reference to the murals drew the attention of Shiba Inu community members, who took to the comment section to react.

Some noted that the murals are affiliated with aliens, while others suggested they have been covered up during renovation.

Notably, some users sarcastically stated that his comments about the paintings have no relationship with Shiba Inu.
