Denton Mural

Posted by
sithenah (Greater Manchester/Cheshire, United Kingdom) on 4 February 2012 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

This is just the central part of a mural which was painted on the wall of Denton Pool facing Victoria Park in 2000. It was conceived by David Vaughn and commissoned by the Denton Town Twinning Association. It serves to commemorate both the second millenniumm and the continuing friendship between the people of Denton and Montigny le Brettoneux.

A wider, if less detailed, view can by found on Ackworth born, gone West.

The shadows twining across the lawn are lovely and lead my eyes right to the mural.

Love the enigmatic tones of the mural in contrast with the wandering darkness of the shadows! Lovely!

Love the shadow on the ground - eerie shape! And the mural must be huge if this is just part of it! Great shot!

I like how the man propped and laying on his side appears to be lounging atop the park bench.

Yes, better shot of the mural, which is nice.
But I'm STILL taken by the tree.
