State Library murals – don’t forget to look up !

I do like the murals above the stairs to #QueensHall at the @library_vic, and nice to see that they’re well lit now, a bit hard to see before, but you still have to #lookup; the neoclassical style one with the scantily clad men and boys (Greek mythology ?) is by the one-armed #NapierWaller, dating from 1929, depicting ‘Victory After War’ (though just looks like they’re having a bit if a procession) while the other side is by #SeptimusPower, from 1924, commissioned as a WW1 Memorial, depicting soldiers in Palestine and the Western Front, is just called ‘War’ (!).
