Wall, apparently freshly painted in a modest light purple. The window frame makes a pleasant contrast with its much more vivid, rich, dark blue. There’s not a wayward drop, drip or spatter to be found – unusual!
But wait – those shadow lines (they must be shadows of power lines strung over the street) lead the eye to… hand marks! They may have some sort of ritual meaning, but I suspect this pristine wall was just too much – someone just had to make their mark here!
One for the Hands on walls sub-series!
