Children in a Boat
Children in a Boat is a mural painted on the wall of the stilt-house in Chew Jetty, Penang. It was painted by artist, Ernest Zacharevic in conjunction with the 2012 George Town Festival.
It depicts two children, a boy and a girl, playing on a berthed sampan by the shore, with a pet cat.
An overhanging platform was erected at the base for Zacharevic to stand on during the preparation of the mural.
It had already peeled beyond recognition after less than a year it was completed. The main reason is that the location above the waterline makes the mural extremely vulnerable to weathering.
