Monday Mural - The Greengrocer

Another fabulous mural I found by chance in District VII (Jewish quarters) when we were walking to dinner one of the evenings.
The grocery shop, roof repairer, window cleaner - scenes from daily life are portrayed in this gigantic wall that can be found oKlauzál Square (near Dob Street).

From information I read online the lady at the entrance of the grocery shop is actually Zsuzsa néni (Auntie Zsuzsa) from the grocery store Lumen located just a few doors down, and some of the other characters are also based on locals.  
First painted in 2012 by Neopaint Works, the wall later suffered water damage and the artists repainted the mural in 2016 and added new characters to the very popular mural.

  2. It's a beauty. Aside from the people, it is hard to know what is real and whatg is just paint.

      I don't like the dark, wet days, rather have a sunny winter day, otherwise I just want to hibernate :(

  9. I know how very late I am visiting, but I'm trying to catch up today, even though I still have chills and a morbid cough. I also wanted to thank you for visiting when I was too sick to return the favor.

    All I can say is, wouldn't it be fabulous to wake to this scene every morning? What a joy to find this.

  10. There are an amazing number of murals out there these days, Sami, and some of them extremely well done. I forget about your Monday challenge because I'm always putting a walk up. This week it contains a couple of murals too but not enough to qualify for your challenge. One day I'll remember! :)
