Mural of Saint Michael's Mount
The mural shows Saint Michael's Mount and the Cornish Coastline and is painted on a house at Saint Michael's Mount. The small island near the peak of the roof is Saint Clement's Isle where according to legend an ancient hermit tended a guiding light.
Originally I though the mural showed Le Mont Saint-Michel. However apart from the island and river the coastline is a poor match. Clare from Saint Michael's Mount kindly set me straight. The compass points in the wrong direction which confuses matters somewhat. :-)
