Mural of the Forbidden City
A while ago I posted pictures of a large mural of The Great Wall of China in an alley off Dundas St. West. A new mural has been painted on the other side of this alley, a mural depicting the Forbidden City which is now in the center of Beijing China. The Forbidden City was an imperial palace for twenty-four emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties (about 1420 to 1912). One could only enter the complex with the permission of the Emperor, hence the name Forbidden.
A pair of Chinese Guardian Lions, one at each end, stand over the Forbidden City.
The mural was painted by Blinc Studio artists,
Allan Bender, John Nobrega, Jesse McCuaig and Elaine Teguibon
