mural by artist fritz

This mural can be seen in Sligo near the Gaavogue River.  The wall was commissioned by Sligo Tidy Towns.  Fritz wanted to create a mural that celebrated the Sligo connection that Bram Stoker has to the town and it’s possible influence on writing Dracula.

  7. Did not know that Bram Stoker was from Sligo. The wolf reference is a bit arcane, but it makes for a powerful image.

  8. Great find Bill! I like the abbey ruins in the mural too as well as the wolf.

  9. Very strong image; is it the stance, the colour, or the muzzle. . perhaps all three together.

  14. This wolf is pretty noble looking. Not at Dracula scary. Otherwise, he'd give me nightmares. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
