The Two Halves of This Mural Are 300 Miles Apart

New, 1 comment

This mural by French-born street artist MOT, titled "The Mediterranean Door," begins in the the Maltese town of Sliema with a painting of a man's rear ends and legs as he crawls into a hole on the side of a building, and ends 300 miles later in the Italian town of Sapri where he claws his way out of another wall, snarling. The piece is meant to represent the arduous journey of immigrants into Europe. Our question, though, is the age-old one: face or butt? That is to say, would you rather have the face mural in your town, or the butt one? Conventional wisdom would go for the face, but there's something very funny and charming about that butt.
