Banksy – Rage, Flower Thrower


Banksy – Rage, Flower Thrower



SKU: 4721 Category: Tag:


This powerful graffiti image first appeared as a large format stencil on Jerusalem’s West Bank wall, which separates Palestine from Israel.

In the image, a young protester is in the act of hurling what you would expect to be a grenade, but instead is a bunch of flowers.

As ids typical of Banksy’s works, the image portrays a paradox of emotions, context, and symbolism that is both jarring and thought provoking: it reminds us that peace and beauty can be powerful weapons against corruption and conflict.
