Little Girl in Blue (GPS: 5.41975, 100.33577) is a giant mural on the wall on Muntri Street, facing the compound of the Penang Goldsmith Association. The mural is the work of Lithuania-born artist Ernest Zacharevic. It was painting as part of the street art for the 2012 George Town Festival.

The Making of "The Girl in Blue"

"The Girl in Blue" shows a little girl lifting herself up on both hands. In the original photograph, the little girl has her hands on the side of tables, but in the mural, she is perched over the two windows.

"The Girl in Blue" is one of the two larger-than-life murals created by Zacharevic for George Town. The other one is "This Old Man" on Armenian Street. Note the names given here for the murals are descriptions; the actual murals do not have names.

Quite a number of people have said that this is the "scariest" of the murals. I do not know why, but I was a bit startled when I saw it myself. Perhaps it's because the little girl doesn't seem to be smiling, or perhaps she's so large, or perhaps it's due to her hair over her eyes.
