“Kapliczka/Shrine” mural by Low Bros

It’s one of my favourite murals in Warsaw. The “Shrine/Kapliczka” mural was painted by Low Bros – Berlin based brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt. Artists examine the contradictions associated with identity in a digital age. It becomes even more interesting when you realize what it actually represents.

The mural is an abstract form of a common icon of Praga district in Warsaw – shrines with Virgin Mary located in hundreds of courtyards throughout the district. The artists sought to recreate this well known symbol of the Praga community, in their own modern style, originating from a younger generation.

Apart from that, you should also know that Mała Street where you can find the mural, was one of Polański`s “The Pianist” movie locations.
