The Pana Shuffle by Dora Meulman Via Flickr: This giant mural depicts musicians performing the traditional Pana Shuffle, and is a vivid and colorful evocation of peace and community spirit. Intended to represent the essence of Cork, many of the characters depicted are based on real local people. The mural which runs the length of Mutton Lane was painted by local artist Anthony Ruby in 2004. www.anthonyruby.com/?page_id=42
Its provenance can be dated by the message painted into the colorful scene, which was intended as a commentary on world events at the time.
“This mural The Pana Shuffle was painted by me Anthony Ruby between June and December 2004. It is dedicated to everyone except George Bush”
If you happen to be traveling by plane over the Norwegian countryside (or, maybe, spying aerial perspectives of the region by drone) we’d suggest flying over a little municipality called Klepp in Rogaland county.

Many of her creations look like completely normal bedrooms until you
flip on a black light. Suddenly you’re floating in the middle of open
space, surrounded by glowing stars and cosmic clouds. In another room,
waterfalls leap from the walls as if you’re out walking on a moon-lit
night. Fabian uses UV paint to fill the room with hidden mural work,
often working for long hours in black light to see what she is creating.
