In my previous post I took you along for a sneak peek from the first day of last weekend's mural festival. I went back again on Saturday - the 3rd day out of 4 - for another visit.
I'll start with showing the progress made on the four walls I also saw on the first day; and then move on to some others that I did not visit on the first occasion. Enjoy!

|Work still in progress, but now clear that it has a musical theme.|

Some kind of fantasy animal

I have since read that several of the new murals share a theme in paying tribute to mothers and family life. There are a lot of families living in this district.

(Sort of "my home is my castle", I think?)
|Another fantasy creature|
|A more abstract one|
From the local newspaper I learn that
it's all supposed to be "nice words" in this mural, including the names of people who came bringing
the artist coffee while he was working on it! I like how the journalist sums
it up: "Here is an alphabet I can't read, in a district where many languages are spoken that I don't understand. I must choose to trust both that what has been written here, and what is being said, is kindhearted."
I have not yet been back to see the finished murals (including one or two more that I missed). They'll be there for a good while to enjoy now, though, so no particular hurry.
