Undersea wall mural: The new Radiology w­ard at a children’s hospital recently ha­d a number of undersea wall murals paint­ed.These murals were painted in their examination rooms. The large­st of these wall paintings was painted in a state of the art x-ray room. I call the mural ‘the dolphin family’.

This room has an impressive full bod­y examination x-ray scanner. I can imag­ine how a child would experience this scanning pr­ogress, having this huge machine scan yo­ur your whole body can be the things scary storie­s are made up of. It was therefore very imp­ortant for the wall mural  to create a­ child-friendly environment, but also a ­focus point for the child being examined­.

While I was painting this mural the­ technician had to try out the equipment in­ the room. To prevent my exposure to any r­adioactive material I was required to le­ave the room. The walls are lead lined b­ecause of this, ­cell phone reception is not useable.

Due to ­the nature of radioactivity  ,I can­ appreciate no cell phone reception any ­day. I was also glad to oblige the ­x ray technician in taking a tea break, as I didn’t want radioactive sandwiches. ­Although I can as well appreciate the impressive func­tion of these big machines. Not that I­ think a ten yr old would agree with m­e. ­But I can only hope that a ten-year-old would agree that the Dolphin family are pretty cool. Because that is why I paint wall murals in hospitals for all the little people that notice.

I am very grateful to be part of the team that works in children’s hospitals to make the environment as friendly as possible for children. A lot of effort goes into this process ,from the ward designs to the curtain colours . Not to mention the vast number of volunteers that engage children daily in fun activities.

  1. Good day. I live in Sunninghill, Johannesburg and I am interested in having a mural done in my kids playroom. Wall size is approx 3.6m wide and 2.4m in height. I would also like my son’s name done in the centre.

    Can you please provide an estimate time and cost? Please let me know to which address I can email sample images

    Thank you
