Murals, with or without a trompe l'oeil effect, can be big or small, inside or outside, encompass a whole room or only part. A mural is a painting applied directly to a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface. Painted murals dating back to prehistoric times are proof that people have an inherited instinct to decorate. Give us a surface and man will paint a mural on it to express his ideas, thoughts, imagination and emotions.
