Massimo’s woman in Sofia

A large mural of a young woman wearing traditional Bulgarian clothes has been painted by street artist massimo on the side of a building in Sofia.  She is holding a loaf of bread – bread plays an important role in Bulgarian traditions, customs and holidays.

She has a flower in her hair, a rose, which is the national flower of Bulgaria.   But not all of the symbols that she is adorned with are Bulgarian.  On her forehead and around her neck are “third eye” symbols, or chakras.

two turquoise metal chairs and a little round grey table sit on a sidewalk in front of a large mural of a woman. Only the feet, ankles and calfs are visible.

She stands tall, smiling over the sidewalk, perhaps she’s wiggling her toes.
