Hyuro, a large mural in Ravenna, Italy


Hyuro recently spent some time in Ravenna, Italy for the Subsidence Festival where she created this new piece entitled: ¨25 November International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women¨
Located in the ¨Giardino Sorelle Mirabal¨ of Ravenna, the piece was named this way in honor to the Mirabal Sisters, four Dominican sisters who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo and were involved in clandestine activities against his regime.
Three of the sisters were assassinated on 25 November 1960. Their death was a catalyst for change, and was the first event in a long sequence of events that led to freedom and democracy in the Dominican Republic.
In 1999 the 25 November was designated as the ¨International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women¨ in their honor.
Reconvene after the jump for a bunch of extra shots on this artwork and then make sure to drop your two cents down in our comments section.
