Wild Orphan

Mural by Tamara Alves for Wool Festival in Covilhã, Portugal.

“This mural was named after an Allen Ginsberg poem called Wild Orphan.
After discovering the city of Covilhã, this piece transformed itself into an ode and at the same time an awareness to the slow death of its heritage, the bobbin lace work as one of them.
‘Don’t let it became a myth.’ This piece is both it’s death and its reborn at the same time: ‘to create out of his own imagination the beauty of his wild forebears – a mythology he cannot inherit.'”
