Here a lovely mural by Spanish artist Manolo Zousen aka Mesa painted for the Urban Vision festival in Acquapendente, Italy.

Titled “Retrato de Osvaldo” (Portrait of Osvaldo), the new mural depicts the image of Osvaldo, a shepherd who lives in the countryside and works with animals, especially sheep. According to the artist, the  idea behind the mural was a little by chance. They met and then Manolo decided to take a few photographs of Osvaldo working in the fields.
Osvaldo the shepherd is depicted looking to something on his right, and as a coincidence, he looks at a church whose interior is decorated with a series of murals portrays the life of a shepherd and his sheep,  most probably as an allegory of Jesus.
