Mica Still and the bear

 This photo came up in my memorites on Facebook, I'd forgotten I had it so herewith this bear on the side of a building in Mount Maunganui was painted by artist Mica Still who seems to have an afinity with bears from what I can see on the Facebook page. It's bright, it's colourful but I'm not sure what it's all about.

Well as of this morning we have a Labour led majority government and we couldn't be happier. With roughly full election results it looks like Labour is on 49.5% which means they can govern alone without teaming up with any other parties. I think Jacinda really has done well leading us through Covid so hopefully the next 3 years we can bounce back even stronger.

Linking up with Mural Monday and Through my lens.


  1. I've not seen the wall painting before. Rather an unusual one.

    Well done to the Labour Party. They owe a great debt to their leader in my view.

  2. ...great mural and I'd vote for Jacinda!!!

    1. I would've offered to swap our leaders so we could work on yours but not sure we want Covid back.

  3. Very beautiful mural (as a side note I just have a caffeine-soda with the Berlin Bear as label).
    Yes, your happy political outcome was in the news here yesterday, too! Lucky you. Darn Merkel did a bad job in many a way and if we´re really unlucky we need to wear masks even in the street now.

  4. Hope Jacinda can govern without a coalition. She's very popular over here

  5. I like that bear, Amy. It's cleverly done, even if I have no idea why it's there. It appears to be surrounded by many others, too.

    I apologize for not knowing anything about your politics. I'm sure you know much more about mine, because our president is such an an a$$ he is disliked the world over.

  6. He's rather dark and mysterious. I like him :) :)

  7. Excelente ese mural. Se nota que el que lo ha hecho es un artista.

  9. I like that bear. It's very well done too

  10. Nice and colourful mural Amy.

    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.
