The beautiful murals in Nimb Bar were created by artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen. Cathrine was trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from where she graduated in 2003. The classic myths are a recurrent source of inspiration in her art, and in Nimb Bar her murals from 2008 depict the Greek myth of the sisters Philomela and Procne.
Philomela and Procne were daughters of King Pandion. Procne married King Tereus and gave birth to his son, Itys. Tereus molested Procne’s beautiful sister Philomela and cut out her tongue so she wouldn’t speak of his deed. However, Philomela was an accomplished embroiderer and she embroidered the incident on a piece of fabric that she sent to her sister. As revenge, Procne killed the son she had given King Tereus, made soup of his body and served it to Tereus. After eating the soup with great pleasure, he realised that it had been the broth of his own son. In fury, he attempted to kill the sisters, but the gods intervened and turned them all into birds.
Philomela became a swallow, Procne a nightingale and Tereus a not very elegant hoopoe. Itys was resurrected as a goldfinch.
