This was the second mural commission for Great Ormond Street Children's' Hospital, following the success of the previous years Peter Pan Mural. Working again with the hospital school, this time I wanted to take a different track to arrive at a design.

Using professional story teller Arti Prashar from Lotus Arts, the children were told the Indian story

of 'The Bharunda Bird'. From this the children made their own shadow puppets and produced a puppet show. The design for the mural was taken directly from the children's show, and was painted in that shadow puppet style with the warm luminous glow from the background.
