This is a piece of street art, but I’m not sure what it’s about.

Situated on what I think is a little power box, on a street corner that I walk by from time to time and set down low I wonder if many people actually notice it. I also wonder what it represents.

 

Who is this guy with a beard, assuming he really is someone.

 

Is it the artist himself? Is it another artist? Or a musician? A writer?

 

Someone religious? A political figure? A prisoner? A terrorist even?

 

There’s nothing on the stencil, or any graffiti nearby that would indicate what it’s about and I’ve never spotted another anywhere.

 

It’s a puzzle, or should that be an enigma?

 

Perhaps that is the whole point.
