The Land and Sea Mural is being painted on the Ogden Point Breakwater in Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. When completed, the mural will cover the entire length of the breakwater, 762 meters on either side, and will consist of 2,000 panels. Each painting is designed by First Nations artists and hand-painted by youth teams they mentor. It will be the world’s longest mural, and seen by untold numbers of tourists because the breakwater is right beside the cruise ship terminal.
The images show a variety of land and sea creatures common to the area, including the cougar, deer, raven, eagle, wolf, harbour seal, salmon and octopus.
