speckled horse patina


What is it about badly drawn art on walls that just charms me half to death? It's like alchemy, perhaps I will never fully understand it. I discovered this whimsical horse, & bearded man (on the far left) today while exploring Old Akka.

  2. Thanks for sharing these lovely images. I used to love the strange art on the walls of houses in some of the villages near where I grew up. This reminds me a little of that.
