DEN BOSCH Cultural heritage experts have discovered sixteenth-century murals during the demolition of a building in the old city core of Den Bosch, the capital of North Brabant. The three-dimensional murals, using the then-common technique, were hidden in the Mexx fashion store. The new building will receive a storefront that is reminiscent of the style of the 1920s and thought to blend in with its surroundings.
