A striking mural has been unveiled at the home of a Norwich-based charity.
The colourful artwork is displayed at The Hamlet Charity Children's Centre for young people with disabilities, close to Chapelfield Gardens, and draws on the theme of "musical meadows".
It is the first of six large-scale murals commissioned as part of "The Great Dandy Mural Project", which involves artists creating work based on pictures drawn by venue service users.
Senior manager for the children's service at the centre, Jayne Buckingham, said: "The mural has art from some of the children as well. They designed the pictures and we've been able to incorporate some of their ideas into the mural.
"It's amazing that their work has been touched by this project."
One young service user, Gabriel, said she gave the new mural "100 out of 10".
