Description

This is an iconic mural. It depicts protesters as graceful dancers, dodging the tear gas of the police, celebrating the bravery of those who faced up to police violence on Mohamed Mahmoud Street.
The mural is especially striking given that it was painted on a security wall erected by the authorities on Mohamed Mahmoud street, creating a newly-militarised area that had previously 'belonged' to the revolution.
