A Great Wall

This is just a small section of a mural that I found in a laneway off Dundas St in Chinatown. The mural stretches for over 140 ft  along the building and is 12 ft tall, showing a wonderful artist's rendering of China's Great Wall. The piece was sponsored by the city and the local business association but I couldn't find an artist signature although I think it was done by Allan Bender who is known for his great murals.  This one is a marvel!

Goodness that is a long mural Pat.. In a way it almost authenticates the subject matter , wonderful achievement by the artist.

If it is 140 foot long it's more than a marvel it's a masterpiece

Nicely done and about as close as I will ever get to the Great Wall myself.

That's an incredible mural!

It is beautiful. The Chinese people in the neighborhood must love it.

BTW, manatees are slow-moving, peaceful animals. Humans are much more danger to manatees than manatees are to humans.

It is beautiful, and wonderful—we have seen the Great Wall. My husband walked (climbed) part of it, and took photos. This mural is a gorgeous rendering of an amazing sight. You're right, it's a marvel.

I like to see the murals you share, here there is little.

A marvel indeed, it's almost as long as the Great Wall itself ;-)

Oooo, so cool. This mural really plays with one's fantasies of the exotic East. Only this Great Wall shows better air quality than you're likely to find at the real Great Wall. A wonderful evocative rendering. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
