Monday Mural - Border Crossing

I found this mural in a carpark in Northbridge near the Chinese quarter. It was painted by Fremantle artist Audrey Fernandes-Satar in 2012 and commissioned by the "City of Perth council". 
It's entitled "Border Crossing" and between the horse's legs there's lines of poetry.

I also saw an Australian white Ibis while I was taking these photos, which I had never seen in Perth before. I had seen them in Sydney though...


 I'm back from my short holiday with my Parents and will be posting shortly about our visit to Denmark (in Western Australia, not Europe!), Margaret River, etc.

  1. Nunca tinha visto este pássaro. Que giro!
    Gostei muito do mural também. Gosto imenso de cavalos e gostei do contraste do preto do desenho em fundo branco.

    1. Obrigada Sandra. Nao me parece que estes passaros sejam muito comuns em Perth, mas agora durante as nossas ferias no sul voltei a ver alguns.

  3. Great mural - just kinda sad it looks so "unfinished". I´ve never seen a bird like that!
    Oh, that was a rather short visit then!

    1. Thanks Iris, it's quite a simple mural, maybe it's meant to look that way. We went away for 10 days, time just flew!

    1. That's true Tom, I actually hadn't noticed that! Have to go back to see what the other murals behind look like.

  7. A fascinating mural. Like Wandering Wren, I'm curious about what else is written on the wall. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. Pity I didn't take more photos, but with so much to read it would be difficult to piece it all together.
