IN MEMORIAM de Pilar Castañón y María Romero

11 – IN MEMORIAM de Pilar Castañón y María Romero. Avda. Juan Carlos I (Bda. San Isidro)

What we can see in the mural is a child in a beach, kneeled over the sand and looking at the sea. The child is dressed in similar clothes to those worn by Aylan (the Kurdish child dead in the coast of Turkey when he was running away from the war). So, the artist maybe wants to symbolise the suffering of refugees and all people in this situation.

When I look at this mural, I feel sadness because of what it represents, but I also feel proud of all the people trying to do their bit to solve this problem.
