23FEB13. On the walls of The Republik in Cambridge, Boston, MA.
I saw another awesome mural (paste-up) yesterday and the information below is taken from this link: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2011/12/14/Shepard-Fairey-Recycles-Harvard-Square-Mural-of-Muslim-Woman-on-Time-Person-of-the-Year-Cover–Updated ~
Though the word “peace” appears at bottom, and there is a tulip in the barrel of the gun, the tulip is also a symbol adopted by Iranian revolutionaries in 1979, and adorns the regime’s flag.As in much of Fairey’s work, the themes of “hope” and liberation are connected in the Harvard Square mural with fantasies of totalitarian violence and domination.
