The movie was called “Braveheart”…
.. but the man was Sir William Wallace.
He fought for Scotland’s independence.
At 35 years of age, he was hung, disembowled, beheaded and drawn & quartered by the English.
Barbaric, yes, but this mentality still exists in our world.
A beautiful mural all around!

Lovely! I loved the movie as well!
Yes, the movie was quite powerful!
Lovely scene. And it’s by a woman artist. YAY! Fabulous.
Winnipeg has more than several female muralists who do breathtaking work! I have a couple of extraordinary works by women coming up soon. One is exceptionally special!
I love the details in the piece, from the scenery to attire, to the prancing of the horse.
It is truly a work of art, and it’s on a wall outdoors. I love it!
Great piece and great to see history from other nations appearing on walls in far off places. I like the detailing in the horse’s muscles.
The horse is amazing. Lol, I wanted to start with a shot of the horse, but it’s not really about the horse.
One of my personal favourites in Winnipeg. I’m glad we found it!
And to think I left it “off” the list because it is 11 years old! This mural has remained in mint condition. TY so much for driving us back to the mural after we spotted it with the corners of our eyes! xoxo
Beautiful … it’s awesome !!
I love the perfect integration of wall elements (cables, pipes, etc.)
Kisses … and lots of encouragement for my favorite duck …
It is a wonderful piece. I love the way… or not …the artist’s incorporate the reality of the surroundings.
The worst is parking signs after the fact.
Sol should arrive any day now! We are waiting excitedly!
It’s true, I’m also very nervous, I want to see her safe … at home.
Awesome wall mural, incredible creative energy flowing – the movie was very good.
This mural is a real beauty, especially considering it is 11 years old! It has survived the cruel Winnipeg winters, beautifully!
There is a reason why it still stands – the strength comes through.
I know I have said this many times before, but this truly is a favorite. 🙂
TY, Daniel! This really is a stunning piece of art! 😀
The artistry is quite amazing, Resa; the colours fabulous. It really does justice to Sir Wallace’s experience.
I also really enjoyed the movie of his battle for independence in which Mel Gibson starred, and also directed (quite a feat).
It was a great feat of a movie, and I enjoyed it! I thought the history came through in the movie, as it does in this mural! xoxoxo
Wow, it has such amazing detail! So sad though the say he died..
Yeah… barbarism should be a thing of the past, but it isn’t.
Men oppressing women should be a thing of the past, but it isn’t.
This is why I love your blog…. When Women Inspire… because it is!!!!
Awww I’m so glad to have your support and to know we are both doing our best to make positive change.. your sharing of art is inspiring!

Thanks, Jet! I was in Winnipeg for 10 days, and the new murals are amazing!
This is such a massive mural! Scenery and all – great job.
Winnipeg is very proud of its murals! It’s a joy to behold them in real life & fun to take the photos!
It is so wonderful that you share them, Resa. Now they will last forever 🙂
