WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) -- He's larger than life in more ways than one.
Clay County native Chester Burnett or Howlin' Wolf is celebrated for his contribution to the music world.
A blues festival is held in his honor every year.
Now his image can be seen on a mural in downtown.
Artist Deborah Mansfield began to paint the mural in early July.
The mural features a rooster which represents Howlin' Wolf's most famous song called "Little Red Rooster."
It includes a record label, guitar and harmonica.
"I'm loving every minute of it because it's something I can share with the community," artist Deborah Mansfield said.
A Mississippi Development Authority grant and a Mississippi Department of Transportation grant will cover the costs of the mural and the laying of bricks and gravel.
A metal trellis will also be added along with wisteria and special lighting.
