New Iceland

artist Dave Carty, 1999
a tribute to the local Icelandic people, showing Viking explorers, Icelandic ponies, fishermen, traditional dress.
and a special nod to Charlie Thorson who helped create the faces of Bugs Bunny, Elmer  Fudd, and Snow White (who, legend has it, was based on a local waitress)

These murals appeal to me very much with their links to the past and some fun thrown in!

The Iceland mural appeals to me now that I've finally visited that fascinating country. The cartoonist has a slightly crazed look that probably relates to the wackiness of Bugs and crew. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I did not even think about Snow White being based on real person. These murals are wonderful.
