NATURAL landscape scenes of Seberang Prai made up of 113,190 plastic bottle caps are now on display at the Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP) headquarters in Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

The four murals, each measuring 6m X 2.5m, depict scenes of the Bukit Panchor Recreational Forest, Air Hitam Dalam Educational Forest and two different spots in Permatang Rambai.

MPSP president Datuk Rozali Mohamud said volunteers comprising students and staff from private companies and the council took three days in September to complete the murals.
