Part of a series of recently painted wall murals by local artists along Magazine Road Ghaut, George Town. This is a 3D wall art which interacts with real world objects such as a shrine and the tree nearby the wall. It basically depicts a temple ground and a person cleaning a shrine’s roof with his two friends who sit under the tree, presumably drawing out the whole scene.
