Spanish artist Joaquín Vila painted a fascinating new mural in the town of Villaherreros, Palencia, Spain.
The latest mural of Joaquín Vila, aka Juako, represents the identity of the region of “Tierra de Campos”, which is a natural Spanish region, located in the autonomous community of Castile and Leon, that extends also into the province of Palencia. The artist take inspiration by the representative elements of the nature, the landscape and the culture of the surroundings. Using both exterior paint and spray, the mural shows a very special bird of the area, known as the Great bustard (Otis tarda), and other elements such as the old wine cellars, cereal fields or the anvil as a symbol of the farrier tradition of the town.
