You live in one of the rare parts of the world were a mural is part of the architecture but in a rather sweet old style. The shocking effect what a good mural must have is a bit absent here. Still if the wings of the bird were the hands of a clock it would be another story. But still thanks for showing.

s.c. is absolutely correct about the style and composition of the extraordinary murals in your part of the world. Lovely to look at and delightful to see!

INteresting subject matter. These are beautiful paintings. Glad they're up high so no one can graffiti them.

The first one reminds me of John the Baptist and Christ.

Wow. Did they paint those directly on their walls? Beautiful.
