Laneway Lovely

I spotted this mural somewhere in a laneway in Kensington Market and what a lovely piece it is. It is a collaboration between artists Bacon and ArtChild and was done in 2007 and seems to have survived the years quite well.

The artwork is quite good. It takes careful looking to realize that the head is flat, not a carving.
