The Greman duo Herakut was recently in Schmalkalden, Germany where they painted this lovely mural for the Wallcome festival.
Titled “Once Upon a Time” the new mural features the image of, probably every childs favourite fairytale, the “Little Red Riding Hood” accompanied in this occasion of a short text that reads as follows: “Not every wolf is bad. (We are often only too lazy or too cowardly to realize that.)”.
The text reads “Not every wolf is bad. (We are often only too lazy or too cowardly to realize that.)”. According to the organizers, the mural “deals with the power of clichés. The artists want to point out how easily clichés are readily accepted – and how much courage and work it takes to overcome them.
