"Hand in Hand" Mural for Children
Collection : childrens' things
In one the few shopping malls in prewar Damascus ("Damasquino Mall") this wall painting was found in the ground floor, next to some activities for children (climbing on artificial boulders, computer games). One of the depicted kids wears a Palestinian flag as a scarf and the slogan points in direction of a call for solidarity between Syria and Palestine, much in line with the Baath-Parties ideology: "Hand in hand...we will be happy again". This slogan is written in Syrian colloquial.
