Google shows a Doodle today (December 08 th, 2011) for celebrating 125th Birth Day of Diego Rivera.

Rivera was born on December 8th, 1886 in Guanajuato which is a city located in central Mexico.

A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. A particularly distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.
