Entitled Inocente II the new piece is the second mural painted by Mohamed about the same subject. According to the artist, the piece features the image of a friend who was born on December 28th, the holy innocents day, also called Childermas. A day that not only commemorates the massacre of the children by King Herod in his attempt to kill the infant Jesus, but also a day when you are allowed to play jokes and pranks to trick friends and family members.
For this reason, Mohamed’s friend’s classmates never believed him to be his birthday. They thought it was just another joke. The wall is according to Mohamed a cute anecdote.
Here are a few images of the last and the first wall, kindly provided by the artist.
