Theme Day: Graffiti or street mural

Canterbury Tales Murals - Subway

This is a mural in a subway under the St George roundabout in central Canterbury. The murals shows a series of paintings all to do with the Canterbury Tales.
If you look close enough you will see the rails that were cleverly disguised in the picture as one of the beams that goes across the house.

Rose said...

I know...you could easily think it is an actual house!

Kuanyin said...

It is very well done!

Isadora said...

THIS IS ART! Lovely.

Rose said...

All the walls of the subways in this location are painted with themes of the Canterbury Tales. unfortunately most of them were vanadalised and this was the best one. I wish I could show you the Knights Tale. it was beautiful but unfortunately the head of the Knight was missing so I chose that one instead.
I am glad you all like it.

that's amazing. I thought it was one of your streets. I had to click the photo and study it. It is beautiful. Here is my CDP: Street Art entry (too late for the list). Thank you.
