Zilda-Naples-Italy-0

Its a long time since I posted something by Italian artist Žilda, known by his beautiful hand painted paste ups, maybe not since my last blog. This piece certainly caught my attention.
Painted in the Cortile di Santa Chiara in Naples and entitled “Rinunciazione”, the new piece shows the image of a martyr, in this case a nun being martyred by rose thorns covering part of her naked body whilst she prays.
Before Zilda pasted up his piece he cleaned up the wall for all graffiti except for one thing (funny detail on the right). Loving this one.
