The Kilburn Castle in Glasgow, Scotland is like no other fort in the world. The 13th century home was in need of a new cement render in 2007. David and Alice asked their father, the Earl of Glasgow, Patrick Robin Archibald Boyle, to paint the otherwise grey and brown building into a colorful mural. The Earl hired Brazilian graffiti artists Nina Pandolfo, Nunca, and twins Os Gêmeos to design a tropical fantasy world with huge and vibrant fish, monkeys, and large fruits. Their work was meant to be temporary with a three-year permit from Historic Scotland. By 2012, an inspection revealed the cement was once again damaging the castle walls. The mural was supposed to be removed by last summer, although, there have not been any updates as to what has been done with the eclectic work of art.
