The Netherlands

Amsterdam

This mural is on a building in the heart of Amsterdam. It shows probably the number 1 frustration in this city: parking tickets. It is a symbolic civil disobediance work of art, as the women have a lot of tickets, though they tear them up and throw them away.

The beauty of art is that a great piece of art speaks differently to people. Others can see a whole different story being told here.
