„Raining stars” by Māris Šustiņš

From May 20 until June 16, 2016 it is possible to see „Raining stars” at Art gallery Putti.

The wall that divides society, social space, private property, religion, thoughts, beliefs, culture, and countries. The wall as a symbolic stamp of territory in the architectonic urban environment.
