two women and a faded heart

below: A red headed woman wrapped in a blue shawl and holding a white rose.  White roses are symbols of purity and innocence as well as love and affection.  Traditionally the Virgin Mary is depicted with a blue shawl or similar clothing.  The mural is ‘Oblicze Piękna’, painted in 2018 by Paulina Nawrot.  The title translates to Face of Beauty, or Vision of Beauty.
