What Does Access Log Imply About Media Files' Location

In my muddling around working on two problems involving serving media
pages, I have both problems narrowed down to similar 404 entries in
access_log (apache/mod_python). - - "GET /media/admin/media/
s HTTP/1.1" 404 2343 "http://amrserver:8002/admin/";

My question is why is the path GET from access_log (below) wrong?

base.css and other admin files are located in /home/amr/django/amr/

apache configuration
Listen 8002
<VirtualHost _default_:8002>

<Directory "/home/amr/django/amr/media/admin/media">
AllowOverride None
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Alias /media/ "/home/amr/django/amr/media/admin/media/"

<Location />
SetHandler python-program
PythonHandler django.core.handlers.modpython
SetEnv PYTHON_EGG_CACHE /tmp/.python_eggs
PythonOption django.root /home/amr/django/amr
PythonPath " +

PythonDebug On

Pertinent settings from settings.py
# Absolute path to the directory that holds media.
# Example: "/home/media/media.lawrence.com/"
MEDIA_ROOT = '/home/amr/django/amr/media'

# URL that handles the media served from MEDIA_ROOT. Make sure to use
# trailing slash if there is a path component (optional in other
# Examples: "http://media.lawrence.com";, "http://example.com/media/";
MEDIA_URL = '/media/'

# URL prefix for admin media -- CSS, JavaScript and images. Make sure
to use a
# trailing slash.
# Examples: "http://foo.com/media/";, "/media/".

ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX = '/media/admin/media/'
