Consider the following differences between Mural and Fresco paintings:
1. While mural painting is executed upon freshly laid wet lime plaster, Frescoes are done on already dried walls of solid structures
2. While mural paintings don’t include paintings on ceilings, Frescoes primarily involve paintings on ceilings of solid structures
Select the correct statements from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] Neither 1 nor 2

Murals are large works executed on the walls of solid structures, as in the Ajanta Caves and the Kailashnath temple. Miniature paintings are executed on a very small scale for books or albums on perishable material such as paper and cloth. Fresco is a technique of mural painting executed upon freshly laid lime plaster. This implies that the Fresco is done on wet plaster and that is why it is more durable work than Mural. Murals are painted on already dried surfaces. Remember (Fresco derived from Italian word which means Fresh)
