Down an unassuming road off Lavender Hill, a few minutes from Clapham Junction station, you’ll be greeted by the sight of a house covered in what looks at first like peeling, abstract patterns in muted greens and blues. Step closer and the vivid details of an intricate mural emerge.
The Tapestry of Life mural is the work of Christine Thomas and was painted in 1983 with support from the Wandsworth Arts Resource Project. Depicting a Garden of Eden scene featuring Adam and Eve rendered in soft brown tones at its center, the design was inspired by the greenhouses at Kew Gardens.
