Leeuwarden mural

I found this mural of a jester on a building in the Ipe Brouwerssteeg in the centre of Leeuwarden.

A jester, court jester, or fool was historically an entertainer. In medieval times jesters entertained in a wide variety of skills: principal ones included songs, music, and storytelling; additional ones included acrobatics, juggling, telling jokes, and magic. (from Wikipedia)

The mural wasn't signed and unfortunately I haven't been able to trace who made it. I like it a lot though!

It's my contribution today to Monday Mural.

  2. The Jester fits in with the scene. Much better than the graffiti and the tagging.

  3. Always fun to find a Joker. He must be modern as he is wearing a wrist watch.

  5. Love the expression on the jester's face. And what a prime, dramatic position on the corner of the wall.

  8. I like the way he's observing the pedestrians, just waiting for them to look up and spot him. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
