Photographer's Note

Glasgow is well known for its amazing giant murals. Out of three murals, which I had the chance to see, this was the only one which I have seen well lit by the sunshine and which therefore offered itself to be photographed.

The mural was created in 2018 by Smug, the Australian artist based in Glasgow. It is his second mural in town.
It presents an image of St Enoch tenderly holding her young son, Kentigern, St Mungo, who is Glasgow's founder and patron saint.
In fact the first mural of this artist can be seen a bit further up the same street and it features St Mungo as an adult.
The robin is present on both murals, it refers to one of St Mungo's miracles, with the patron saint of Glasgow believed to have brought the bird back to life.

Breastfeeding in public is supposedly a controversial issue. I never understood why it is a problem for some people.

I have sourced the information about this mural from the following article. You can see there also photos of the artist at work:
