On our way to an official meeting we came across this beautiful, impressive piece of art. As the meeting at the embassy will soon be forgotten, as many of such meetings only deserve a silent funeral and disappearance, this fantastic piece of raw grafitti on a wall along the river in Antananarivo deserves to be seen, to be loved and to be remembered for ever. It made my day.
A child with wide open eyes looking into the future. What kind of future is out there? Is there any fairness and justice? Am I given any future perspectives, any hope, any opportunities? At the side of the child in black letters the Malagasy word ZO – meaning “law” – “justice”. And EGALIX which is Malagasy slang for “equality”.
This part of it is just beautiful. Free circulation. Freedom and justice and equality. Perspectives for the future and hope.
On this side of the wall poverty and the informal economy of a population struggling to survive. In the middle the grafitty of hope and justice and equality. Put there by a young person with a vision. Madagascar FANTASTICO.
