The Death of Venus
This monstrosity is but one section part of a multi-part mural on Waverly St. at 15th, about a block from me. It was done by a transgender “artist” Dee something (formerly Wesley something else). It’s right across the street from Peirce College who really want it removed. There are some articles about it in the window of a realtor around the corner. I didn’t have my glasses on and couldn’t really read much of them. I did get that the mural is being given credit for ridding the corner of prostitutes!
I guess Venus is the one with the blood gushing from her throat. I think she’s been killed by the creature in red with the sword in one hand and the giant Lee Press-On nail dangling from the other. The murder looks completely accidental to me.
