Mural Notes

When Hag  made this picture for Pink Floyd’s Britannia Road recording studio in Islington  North London.  (The studio is just out of frame in the picture to the right of the tree trunk).
It was intended to be where you hung your hats and coats etc. Coat hooks were going to be added to the tree. This never happened as nobody could bring themselves to drill holes in the 6’ x 9’ Mural print.

Hag added 7 things that people were supposed to discover when they hung there coats up.
This is a list of the things in increasing order of difficulty……..
1. Cupboard
2. Coats
3. Umbrella
4. Hags Eye
5. Daisy Dog
6. Beetle
7. Beatles (Only on this web image, not in the original)
8. Tree Nymph
