Hunters in the Snow - A mural homage to a favourite painting

One of my favourite paintings of all time is by 17th century Belgian painter Peter Breughel the Elder commonly known as the Hunters in the Snow - so about two years ago when I was given free reign to create a mural for a children's bedroom I decided to copy the landscape of the Hunters in the Snow picture and depict some animal characters instead of the usual human ones and this was the result.
