You have me wondering now because I don't recall seeing it in 2015, but this is my photo from 2017.That’s one of my favourites. Spouse saw it on his walk... strangely, I can’t remember it on mine In that area.
Yes, I was 2014 for the “full” from SJPdP to SdC, and I joined him half-way in 2018 at Fromistá so missed the first 3 weeks...You have me wondering now because I don't recall seeing it in 2015, but this is my photo from 2017.
Could you have possibly walked earlier than your husband? Maybe it was possibly quite new when I took the picture.
Haunting.This is on the side of a building in Igüeña on the Olvidado. I have walked by this twice now and find the gaze haunting. This part of Spain has a love/hate relationship with the (now essentially disappeared) coal industry. They mourn the loss of the jobs and the economy while at the same time you will see memorials to the many miners who have lost their lives in those mines.

I stumbled across another one today by accident in Fundão on the Caminho Nascente: the wolf. If you look very closely, you can see a camino marker on the far left.Those who have been on camino and/or travelled in Portugal may be familiar with Bordalo II and his unusual and extraordinary street art, which involves making sculptures from garbage. In particular, his Big Trash Animals series is quite prominent throughout Portugal.
What a creative, amazing, and awesome display!My favorite souvenir is to take pictures of art and then reproduce them at home. My local photo chain will reprint on bamboo paper which gives the photo the look of the original canvas.
Now I’ve seen these terrific pictures of street art I am going to start seeking them out for my wall of souvenirs. View attachment 101396
