Monday Mural - Bus stop 2

The second of the 3 bus stop murals in Hayman Road, Como, this one painted in greens and blacks. (See previous Mural post).
Painted in December 2012 by Perth artist Dan Duggan and students from Collier Primary School, with the purpose of reducing graffiti on the concrete bus shelters.
I can spot an owl perched on a branch, and something that looks like Saturn.

  5. A success! The bus shelter is transformed into an 'out-of-this-world' space!

    1. I hadn't noticed the birds and the opening making the eyes, very well spotted Iris. Very clever of the artists too.

  11. Constraining the color palette didn't affect the artistry of the outcome. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  12. I enjoyed stop #2 almost as much as the hot, hot #1.

    I especially liked the birds, the owl, and the planet. It's an unusual theme, but I found it quite enjoyable.
