Monday Mural - Old World scene

A few months ago, while waiting for a friend who had an appointment, I decided to drive around and came across this mural. I parked the car and took a photo.
It was painted on a side wall of the Moondyne Joe's  Sports Bar and Bottle Store on the corner of Hampton Road and Wray Avenue in the port city of Fremantle.

The scene depicts a pub on the corner and horses and cart carrying Coopers Beer kegs (an Australian beer).
I couldn't see an artist's name...

  5. Dearest Sami,
    That is quite an artist whomever created this. Very well put together and realistic looking.
    It does however look more New World to me than Old World as I cannot think of any European country with such type of homes... How he/she worked around those pipes!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  7. This is a cute mural and the beer kegs don't look the least bit out of place. Clydesdales are to be found in Australia? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. Apparently there's even a Clydesdale horse society, so yes they also have them here.
