Rose Carpark animals (plus more)

Rose Carpark is on Rose Street just west of Brunswick Street.  In June 2014 many of the walls were painted with street art in a project by Graffix Creative.  Many of the images are of animals although there is a lot of letter/text and a couple of murals of other things.  Below is a sample of the animal murals….  with the last two images featuring animals of the human kind.
