NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A new mural was added to a wall in the Gulch for the NFL Draft.

The colorful and playful butterfly wings are the second pair of wings in the area. The first, painted by Kelsey Montague, was a pair of black and white angel wings.

They've become a famous tourist attraction for women - and some men - to take pictures in front of in Nashville.

A long line often forms at the mural and sometimes even wraps around the block - all for the chance to post the perfect Instagram or social media photo.

The American Broadcasting Company commissioned Montegue to create the painting for the upcoming draft. The company's hope is that the same thing will happen at the butterfly wings just across the street on 11th Avenue South.

A record-setting number of people are expected to be in Nashville for the Draft, Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon and possibly the NHL playoffs.
