Another in the series - Chateaux Clan Ben Ali (See here for a full description)
Again an image depicting the graffiti that seems to cover every surface in the building. In this case a small alcove within one of the downstairs rooms. I find the contrast between the 2 styles of graffiti interesting here. The arabic graffiti strangely ordered and in an odd way quite beautiful - probably due to the calligraphy. In contrast the graffiti written in English is quite ugly - it isn't ordered, in fact it is almost chaotic - one persons comment running into another. Central to this image is the title - the Mafias House. Again help with a translation for the arabic would be greatly appreciated...
Moderators: I've decided against an adult tag for this image as on balance I don't think it needs one. If you disagree I will of course agree to your judgement.
Thanks again for the support. More to come...
