(TruthSeekerDaily)  An intricate mural that sprawls the walls of a classroom in India provides a lesson about life to students, communicated in a way that only this intricate art could.

Japanese artist Yusuke Asai decorated the walls and ceiling of this classroom with sweeping curves, patterns, and shape forms that depict people, plants, and animals in this magnificent painting.  The artist’s medium was mud and is also significant in the overall meaning of the mural.  Asai used local dirt, dust, ash, and straw as a way to symbolize and respect the land that local farmers depend on for their livelihoods.

This stunning work of art in the Niranjana School is part of the Wall Art Festival held in Sujata Village, a small village in the poor Bihar state of Northeast India. Along with other Japanese and local artists, Asai used the walls of the school as his canvas in order to raise awareness of how the children and villagers of Bihar live.

Asai’s work makes for a completely immersive experience, as viewers can gaze in every direction to find playful details and intricacies of the abstract universe that Asai has created by hand and imagination.

Children in this isolated Indian town do not have access to cultural centers, so Asai wanted to bring it to them.  The lesson to the students continued in the take down of the exhibit as well, when the children assisted the artist in wiping away the work he had created, and returning the material to the soil.  This was a symbolic lesson in the life cycle.

What a meaningful initiative and mesmerizing artwork!  Please share these impressive photos with others online.
