Guatemalan has colonial era murals on his kitchen walls

A farmer in a remote indigenous community in the mountains of Guatemala has one of the walls of his kitchen decorated with colonial era murals that are hundreds of years old.

Lucas Asicona made the discovery a few years ago while he was renovating his house.

Experts believe similar murals could lie hidden in a further eight homes in the town of Chajul.
