Monday Mural

I'm joining with Sami and her links to all over the world for Monday Mural.

Our Friend in Japan came across these murals on garage doors as she is on holidays. Rather impressive methinks. They look rather Russian, don't you think? Don't mention the war.

  1. What amazing things to find on garage doors. And yes, they do look Russian.

  3. Someone went to a lot of trouble to decorate garage doors. The images are wonderful.

    1. You've been there Hels. Are the buildings recognisable to you?

  4. Wow, they are impressive! If I had a garage I might have a mural painted on it too. By a professional of course. Maybe Hogwarts or the entrance to Platform 9 3/4

    1. River, I love the idea of Platform of 9 3/4 being on a garage door.

  5. Garage doors were traditionally painted showing the back end of a Ferrari or Royce; things have advanced I see.

  7. Did you notice how much fine) detail is in the lower one? I thought it was an ice rink in the foreground but it’s more like a square or quadrangle with buildings only at the back. Tea for two anyone?

    1. Me look properly at photos Cathy? Most unlikely. A square for people to gather?

    1. Sad is a bit of an understatement TP. Real people, average citizens, dead.

  11. At first I thought they were stenciled on, but now I am not so sure. They are certainly well done. If only I had a better feeling about the subject matter.

    1. B & E, I expect these were painted before this year's event. I never thought of them being stencilled.

  17. Definitely Russian! Looks like they had to shorten the spire on the second one to fit it all on the door. The perspective is a little weird.
