Murals - Angkor Temple in the Jungle Mural


Swimming Pool Mural Design
based on Angkor Wat, Cambodia (& Tomb Raider)

Please scroll down the page to see the photos of the mural

Hand Painted Mural      Date - May 2010      Location - Tenterden, Kent

Angkor Wat and the Angkor Temple complex in Cambodia is really huge, with so much sculpted detail, so in  keeping with reality this is an enormous Angkor jungle mural with lots of detail! Produced to transform a stark and cold feeling indoor swimming pool area into a warm and welcoming haven of fun and relaxation, the original work on this swimming pool mural took three months from conception to completion, and included remodelling of the jacuzzi and building a fiberglass tree! However, due to a new changing room being built and the old alcoves removed, I was called in to rework a large area of this mural. So all of the work around the jacuzzi is gone!! Click here to see. Never mind though, the new work is lovely, and the colour choice has lifted the room even more so it's brighter, and more beautiful than ever. There are lots of pictures that gradually scan around the room, giving an impression of the whole space, but can take a while to load so patience may be required!
