The Sea in Her Blood

Completed: 2020

Located on the side of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, The Sea in Her Blood was created by muralists
Mike Burt (@princefuze), Daniel Burt (@bunhundred) and Justin Fraser-Fong (@pekingdon) in 2020.

The mural pays tribute to the connection Nova Scotian women feel to the ocean. Michael Burt was inspired by an exhibition that was put on by the Maritime Museum.

Funding was provided by the Downtown Halifax Business Commission’s Gritty to Pretty grant program.

From gritty to pretty, one mural at a time
