The image of the castle in the mural is made up of geometric shapes, with superimposed layers, which give the impression of greater depth and makes reference to the many phases of construction of the building.
The mural repeats the ornamentation of one of the halls of the Turku castle and one plan of the arcade of another.
In the work appear elements such as the sky, the land and the sea, which refer to the location of the castle of Turku.
