On my last evening in Minsk, last Wednesday 18 May, I walked 3 kilometers across town, through the main train station to a residential block. I had read about a large mural painted in November 2015 by artist Guido van Helten as part of the Urban Myths project. The mural is huge, 9 stories high, and shows a young woman in a traditional Belarusian style shirt. It's really an amazing painting, and I am glad I saw this as the sun was setting, illuminating the building and the mural. I believe the painting is titled "The Girl in the Embroidered Shirt."
