Sunday Stills – Colourful murals tell stories

Murals tell stories all around the world – these are two of the stories I found in my travels.  It is hard to believe that so many life-changing events have happened within my lifetime. 


I was inspired by the murals that appeared following the Christchurch earthquakes in 2010 and 2011. Amidst the devastation and destruction of so many buildings there were some walls still standing. These became locations for sharing messages of hope, and a bit of humour too.  

Other murals remind us of world changing events.  

The Berlin Wall was built in 1961, creating such division across families, across countries and across the political divide. Throughout the world the ramifications were felt, and then it was brought down.

The stories painted on the walls during and post the Berlin wall tell stories of despair but then hope.

 

Living in a world of colourful murals gives me hope for the future.

  1. Beautiful murals, Liana. The mural with musical notes is terrific. You’ve captured the last two murals so well with the boy smiling at the mural and the woman deep in thoughts. Thank you for linking up with #SundayStills.
