Banksy's Inspiration

Random Thoughts |

I stood there for a long time, lost in thought. Then, slowly, I reached out and touched the wall. It was cold, but I didn't mind. I just stood there, touching the wall and the art, letting the inspiration wash over me.


 "The Flower Thrower is a famous Banksy artwork that portrays a masked Palestinian throwing a bouquet of flowers. The artwork is a symbol of hope and peace in the midst of violence and conflict. "
