myself, i would have chosen a different portrait, but have to admit the result is far better than initially feared. it's not too bad at all. the painter has undoubtedly used what is known as 'keystone correction' from a ground-based projector to faithfully outline the proportions, and that would have been done when it was dark. the result is quite acceptable! :-)

In the first mural, what is the purple squiggle supposed to be or represent?

The subtle rose glow from the "heart in hand/hand on heart" is literally a fitting touch!
....after all, it is all about the heart...
