Ganesha

A mural made by the same artist "Fabrice" (1961) as I posted last week, see "here". It was also in the same neighbourhood.

 The image dates from 2013 and is related to the sign above, a firm advertising for Asiatic jewelery, furniture and utensils,  located around the corner. The Indian demigod with elefants head "Ganesha" represents something new, a new impetus, a new direction.
Linking to "Monday Murals"

  4. Great job with this find. Looks like there is some graffiti above the mural, so disappointing when people mess things up. Love the transportation.

  14. I wonder what it is about Ganesha that draws street artists? We have a few examples here in Oakland. Yours has a decidedly psychedelic feel to it. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
