Livorno, Italy: new mural by Italian artist Zed1 for MuraLi – Diamo colore alla città.
Location: Via degli Asili, 2.
“Zed1 pays homage to the city of Livorno representing a bottled mermaid holding a narwhal in her hand symbolizing a corkscrew. The bottle is a clear historical reference to messages sent by sailors in ancient times. The deeper meaning of the work incites the observer to free himself from preconceptions and patterns in which we live: in fact the mermaid, whose head is still enclosed in the bottle, to be really free and let her ideas flow into the sea, she is forced to open the cork. The fact that she still remains trapped without being able to get out, indicates that it is precisely her thoughts itself that are not yet free.”
