The Scarcity Of Water

New collaborative piece by the twin brothers Os Gemeos and JR in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Os Gemeos wrote a comment to explain the meaning behind this mural:

“[…] the scarcity of water is the reflex of what man and the bad administration of our politics are doing for years! It is the answer from nature to the neglect and disrespect from the deforestation and the pollution of our rivers, lakes and seas. We are all paying the price of filthy politics.”

Especially interesting is this piece depicting the mythical creature Minotaur. In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a monster with the body of a man and the head and tail of a bull. The Minotaur was the offspring of the Cretan Queen Pasiphae and a majestic bull.
