Working with murals
Wall murals are an easy way to turn a plain wall into an artistic expression and also an art form that dates back to around 30,000BC.
Well-known ancient murals include paintings in the Chauvet cave in France, found in Egyptian tombs in 3150BC, Pompeii in 100BC-AD79 and Minoan places around 1700-1600BC.
Murals in the modern home may be hand-painted or take the form of a picture wall using enlarged photographs and imagery. Accessorising is simple. It may follow a theme or pick up on accent colours.
