This spot at the entrance of St Werburghs tunnel has been ‘unavailable’ for a long time as it was home to a tribute piece. It was, however, recently dogged, which means that it can now be painted over, and first up is an occasional visitor to Bristol, Ra, or @allseeing.ra on Instagram.

From recollection, Ra was the ancient Egyptian sun god and had a falcon’s head. This piece by Ra (contemporary street artist) is a modern take on the ancient deity and beautifully painted with expert shading to give depth to the figure. A striking piece. I look forward to Ra’s next visit to Bristol.
