A children’s story is a very appropriate theme for the Municipal playroom, located in the 1920s town´s old school.
It depicts a peculiar scene from the popular tale “Little Red Riding Hood”, but Susana Llorente and Carlos Fernández present here a different take, whereby little red riding hood changes the story by becoming the bad one rather than the victim.
This mural features an oak forest where a little girl with a red hood wears a wolf mask on a full moon night and invites us to enter the forest; a world of fable, adventure and mystery. The character thus challenges fears and breaks down stereotypes as she fearlessly takes her destiny in her own hands and decides to embark on a new path with the firm purpose of exploring and conquering other possible realities. Courageous Little Red Riding Hood has the most powerful tool, her freedom, and an oak branch to defend herself from the possible wolves she may encounter along the way. The mural follows a very illustrative aesthetic that is reminiscent of children’s stories drawings.
In the scene´s lower part of the scene, there are verses by the Galician artist Luis Seoane: ” On those humble and poor walls that silently seem to be waiting, I deliver my message.”
