Hairy Story

When I first looked at this mural, I was not sure if the artist deliberately made her cry or if the canvas had cracks. After enhancing the shadows it looks like he/she has placed serpents along her face for more emphasis on the duality between two worlds. The eye on the right, which is seen on many dollar bills, relates to what is "just" and the left seems to illustrate this unknown battle. The nukes on the bottom, make me question if the artist was inspired by world war II or if it is a future war. The black tears with blood background present more questions. Because black tears could symbolize death and the blood injury. I would love to know what really inspired the artist, the piece was well done and very creative.
