Mind blowing murals from around the globe

As an artform, the mural is the oldest creative technique around. Dating back to 30,000BC in the late stone age. Egyptians made some pretty intense murals as recently as 3,150BC. They were as important then as they are now, depicting battle scenes, historical moments, religious beliefs or political/economical struggles. Of course they can also be pure expressions of creative ideas. You can find out more about the history of mulrals here: wikipedia
