I was running errands in North Portland today. As I was walking down the street I saw a sandwich board that advertised “The Legend of Zelda – A Triforce Tribute gallery upstairs” with the flyer pictured above. My interest was piqued so I popped into Land and headed upstairs.
Instantly a wide grin spread across my face. Three walls of Zelda-inspired artwork made up a brightly lit little gallery. It was just the sort of thing I would expect to stumble on in Portlandia.
There were wood cut-outs, paintings, a tile-work, some paper-craft. There were stuffed dolls, and there was even a collection of Zelda-themed memes, including Courage Wolf. Really it was amazing and just evocative of the fun of the Zelda series. It called to mind those afternoons of playing Link to the Past after my little brother erased my game for the FIFTH time.
My favorite piece was this potion shop sign with a row of potions! So cool. Now I wish I had gotten a closer picture of the individual potions. Damn.
I took a few more pictures. Check them out below.
