on the wall behind the reception area of the boutique hoteleibatova has drawn large green leaves of various species and size. friendly figures and colorful birds can be seen walking through and resting on the trees. in the restaurant, the mural continues with an expanded spread that sees large enchanted animals foraging through the jungle landscape. winged frogs meet quirky zebras and mythical birds, forming a curious and creative backdrop to the eatery. the tiled artwork reflects the vibrant, bohemian character of the hotel and its natural landscape, drawing from the unique flora and fauna of the surrounding environment.
