There is a large mural by Lebanese artist
Yazan Halwani covering the side of a building on Nadeem Al Mallah street in Amman. It was painted in 2016 from a mannequin wearing a folklore type costume.
Like a lot of Halwani’s work, the design relies on calligraphy & Arabic writing. It is meant as a statement about the mix of Jordanian and Lebanese cultures.

Jewell train station is on the Upfield line in Brunswick. The Upfield Bikeway path runs alongside the tracks at this point. Most of the walls along the bike path have street art on them. This is a selection of the graffiti that I saw around Jewell station and south from there to Park street.
