"Enchanted Moura", a new mural by Nomada in Carballo, Galicia
The Rexenera Street Art Festival recently took place in Spain where Nomada created this mural on the streets of Carballo, a city located in the province of Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia.
This piece tells the story of the "Enchanted Moura", a supernatural being from the fairy tales of Portuguese and Galician folklore. She often appears singing and combing her beautiful long hair, redhead or black as the night with a golden comb, and promises to give treasures to whom sets her free by breaking her spell.
The main character of the mural is also knitting, creating a tapestry depicting women from Galicia which formerly carrying baskets on their head, transporting the goods from the commercial activities. Behind her are represented six women, each carrying different types of goods, emphasizing the different trades of the time and stressing the vital importance of the women figure.
