This week's roundup of notable walls reveals a balanced overview of visual representations of some divine and human aspects on a rather large scale. Leading off is artist Faith47, who in response to the invitation of the Dulwich Picture Gallery Project in London, painted her take on the old master Guido Reni's masterpiece 'Europa and the Bull'. Named 'Europa And The Winged Bird', the mural takes the mythical theme of Europe's abduction into a less aggressive, gentler direction, leaving space for new interpretation.
