Mural at Rua Correia da Silva Nº 51

The large graffiti mural was created by a local illustrator on the side walls of the staircase linking Calçada do Quartel and Rua Correia da Silva. The design was inspired by the traditional Chinese culture, where tiger is the symbol of good fortune and protection. The Chinese character “Tiger” is similar in pronunciation in Putonghua to the character “Fortune”, hence came to the theme “Lucky Tiger”. The murals are painted with bright colours in cartoon style, portraying children wearing tiger costumes playing around, creating an auspicious and joyful atmosphere in the neighbourhood.
