Italian artist MP5 was until recently in Lugano, Switzerland where she painted this new mural entitled “Open God”  inspired by the greek Myth of Ganymede. Ganymede had been tending sheep when he was abducted by Zeus from Mount Ida whilst he, near Troy in Phrygia by either sending an eagle or turning himself into an eagle to transport the youth to Mount Olympus.
The mural talks according to MP5 about “the acceptance of desire and elevation.”
