A MURAL themed ‘Folklore by the Sea’ was painted on a wooden house at Chew Jetty in Weld Quay, Penang, to tell stories of life during the early days at the clan jetties.

The mural crafted using spray paint and acrylic shows a man relaxing on his hammock while a cat perches on the roof, a woman cleaning a fish and a boy jumping into the water.
