Painted Boxes: Foliage and Bugs

(Wednesday is for painted boxes.)

Opposite of Bruce McLaren Intermediate School (in Bruce McLaren Road, Henderson – map) are two transformers, painted by Mandy Patmore with stencil work by the MPHS Young Believers (a youth group associated with the McLaren Park Henderson South community initiative). This is the green/black one of them, depicting leaves of some plants in the bush, and some of the creatures which inhabit (and eat) them. (The blue transformer may feature another time.)

There are several other examples of painted boxes where artists have involved local youths in the process – a great concept!
