Beautiful mural. Too bad it's fallen into decay. Could this not also be called a trompe l'oiel? I'm not sure I know the difference.The basilica in my picture yesterday was built in the 1890s, the rest of the Christian Science complex was built in the 1970s and designed by I.M. Pei. I guess my description might have been a little confusing.
Don't we seem to see this "decay" a lot around our towns?
What a shame...it looks to have been a fun one!
Nice wall ! I like it a lot.
Soon it will be covered with weeds an no one will be able to enjoy it anymore :(.
Maybe the decay is what makes it so special!
But isn't it nice that it's weathered a bit, no longer bright and new looking.
Hi Blue - I'm noticing an area in the mural between scenes that reminds me of a tree trunk, and it's topped by a real tree with leaves extending over the wall. I guess nothing gets by in life without growing older - even murals.
Actually, the decay lends a charm to it. The colors are softer, and it looks almost like a vision of a spirit. Though I agree that if weeds and debris take over, it will be a pity -
Great image. It's cool to find old art tucked away in the city.
