With the aim of cheering Egypt’s football team which will be playing in the 2018 World Cup in Moscow, a 112-m-long mural has been unveiled by Mustafa Said, head of the apparatus for developing the town of New Tiba in Luxor, Upper Egypt.
The mural, which took three months to complete, is painted on the wall fencing the Social Club’s football court. It is the work of artist Asran Abdel-Fattah who is also an architect and manager of the aesthetics department at the town apparatus. It depicts scenes of football players and fans, and a giant depiction of the Egyptian player and Liverpool star Mohammad Salah.
Mr Said said that the town apparatus encourages the use of art works to beautify the various districts, a practice which earned the praise of Mustafa Madbouli who until last week was Minister of Housing, but is now Prime Minister.
