Description

This vivid image shows a fist, adorned with a cross and a crescent, representing unity between Muslims and Christians, breaking through military tanks. It represents a popular call for unity in standing against the army, seen by many activists as a major enemy of the revolution under the rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).
The artist, El Teneen, became well-known after the fall of Hosni Mubarak for his political graffiti opposing military rule.
