Although this doesn’t exactly qualify as clandestine graffiti as it was no doubt paid for by a private company, the building itself or perhaps the neighbouring parking lot, this full-scale mural covers the entire side of this building on Tallinas iela. A man (or perhaps an ancient pagan god?) with a long white beard and a sword is flanked by two Latvian women in folk costumes – one holds a kokle (a string instrument), while the other cradles a pitcher in her arms. All are wrapped up in a traditional Lielvārdes josta (a woven belt with intricate patterns and pagan symbols) in front of a background of a forest and a setting or rising sun.
