Banksy?

@Luiz: Actually it looks like Banksy, but I'm sure it isn't. I think I would have known if he was around here. :-)

Looks like a Bansky to me.

Looks like hard times and strong graphics in Portugal.

This piece is so ambiguous it's hard to know what to think. The stenciling is very cool, the girl is darling, and the man quite menacing. Is she in danger like the girl in Frankenstein? Does her innocence protect her? What exactly are his intentions? Even without a clear narrative, the mural is amazingly engaging. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural. And a happy holiday to you.
