Since its installation in March 2018, the mural has become an instantly recognisable icon of the capital’s landscape. The artwork was commissioned by Literature Wales, CADW, Allotment and Welsh Government as part of the Weird and Wonderful Wales project, and created by artist Pete Fowler best known for his work with the Super Furry Animals.

The mural draws on some of the strange and fantastic stories from Wales’ literary heritage and is mounted on the 1932 grade II listed Great Western Railway Water Tower. The mural comprises images particularly inspired by The Mabinogion, the ancient oral stories of Wales which were written down in the Middle Ages. There is the giant Bendigeidfran (‘Blessed Crow’) – King of Britain – who fought the Irish and whose severed head talked to his men for eighty-seven years; Blodeuwedd, who was conjured from flowers by two magicians as a wife for Lleu, but was transformed into an owl as punishment for trying to murder her husband; the noble stag, slain by the ghostly hounds of Arawn – Lord of Annwn (the Otherworld); and there is the goddess Rhiannon, who rides her horse better and stronger than the best horsemen of Pwyll.
