I found it fascinating to look closely at all the different ‘poses’ of the tiny men.

Artist(s) presumably are the Berlin based Rocco und seine Brüder.

With the help of scooj (https://scooj.org/ and see his comment below) the artist is a Greek by the name Insane51. It is kind of a 3D mural, with a blue lens you get to see the woman, with a red lens her skeleton.

Sami then pointed this YouTube video out:

That also led me to his video of how he makes his art:

All-in-all I find this ‘collaboration’ of an Insane51 fan for this Monday Mural post truly great!

‘You’ve got…what?!’ asked Breschnew astonished is my six word response to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.

The kiss that symbolizes a deadly regime

The line in German ‘MEIN GOTT. HILF MIR. DIESE TÖDLICHE LIEBE ZU ÜBERLEBEN’ sums it up the sentiment regarding the deadly regime at the time quite nicely. It translates into something like ‘MY GOD. HELP ME. TO SURVIVE THIS DEADLY DISEASE‘.

It’s been thirty years since that hated wall came down. Little did anyone know what the real consequences would be.

‘You’ve got…what?!’ symbolizes another viral disease called freedom that proved deadly indeed to some. But for many, many more it was the unstoppable virus that led to unification of a nation.

Lest we never forget what this wall symbolized here’s one more piece of art that shows how things were.
