This mural was created by Freskolab. It is dominated by the colours green and blue and is designed as an optical illusion by using the unique architecture of Vivaqua’s head office to give the impression of a building lengthy in volume. The interactions between the characters are a fanciful and offer a dynamic reflection of the close relationship we have with water. They also represent the essential role played by the Vivaqua company, who commissioned the mural and wanted to celebrate its past 130 years of making clean and healthy water accessible to everyone. At the top of the mural, spring water flows in the form of a waterfall, reminding us that in order to have access to clean water – the guardian of life – we must take care of our soil and consume water responsibly.
