four Batmans and an old man’s bird

Close to the intersection of Dhirar Bin Al-Azwar street and Moh’d Al-Shurayqi street are two pieces of street art.  They have nothing in common except their proximity to each other.

First is a bright mural called “Odin” by Suhaib Attar of a bird  on top of an old man’s head.  The feathers on the bird meld into the hair of the man’s beard and moustache.  Is the bird dead or alive?

Odin is the bearded one-eyed Norse god of is the god of wisdom, poetry, death, divination, and magic.  He was often accompanied by two wolves and two ravens.

The other wall features a more modern character, Batman.

Someone has written “quarter life crisis” on the wall.  I suspect that it has nothing to do with Batman but I rather like the juxtaposition.
