The mural is designed by Imagineer Xiao Qing Chen, who drew inspiration from her own heritage, having been born and raised in Malaysia. Qing told Disney Parks Blog that she drew from the art of Batik, which is a Southeast Asian fabric design using wax, dyes, and stamps.

Qing said she hopes the mural “helps everyone choose to embrace differences. I believe if we are willing to take the first step to drop judgements and trust and learn about those around us, we will come together to create a more compassionate future.”
