The Beauty Salon

I'm still going through the pics from my trip so the posts are a bit random as I come across a pic that I like. Of all the places I went, Liverpool seemed to have the most graffiti and murals which reminded me of home here in Toronto. I spotted this mural in an area of Liverpool that seems to be transitioning from an artist area to a club/entertainment centre. The artist of this mural, titled "Beauty Of The Beast", is the German artist Phillip Jordan who is known for his teddy bears and who was commissioned to do this piece in 2010. The teddies seem to be doing a fine job on the beast right down to the bow on the tail!

I got a kick out of the red shoes on the beast's feet. They go perfect with his green skin. Then I noticed the red bears in the windows. Made me giggle. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
