Angkor Wat ruined temple complex, with its amazing structures and incredible trees, forms the theme for this atmospheric swimming pool mural

This huge arched gateway is one of the gates to Angkor Thom, which contains Ta Prohm,
all of which have been used for inspiration for this mural. Click on the coloured links for information from Wikipedia.

Here you can see what the pool room looked like before all the work was done, including removing the jacuzzi, shower and changing cubicles and replacing with a new changing room.

and which ten weeks later looked like this:

Light streams in through the double doors and the huge strangling roots of a silk-cotton tree slowly reclaim a doorway in the temple upon which it stands.

A little more info about this mural:


Angkor Wat and the Ta Prohm Temple ruins complex in Cambodia covers an enormous site, with an incredible amount of sculpted detail, so in keeping with this awesome reality I have painted here an enormous Angkor jungle mural with lots of detail! Produced to transform a rather cold feeling indoor swimming pool area into a warm and welcoming haven of fun and relaxation, the original work took three months from conception to completion, and included remodelling of the jacuzzi and building a fiberglass tree! However, due to a new changing room being built and the old cubicles removed, I was called in to rework a large area of this mural. These pictures show the final result.
