New Mural by Faith47 and Alexis Diaz: ‘EROS – DESIRE – DE SIDUS – OF THE STAR‘

New collaboration mural completed by Faith47 and Alexis Diaz at Wynwood Walls, Miami, Florida.  Titled ‘EROS -DESIRE – DE SIDUS – OF THE STAR‘ the gigantic wall illustrates a sensuous scene of a beautiful woman (EROS) entangled and afloat with a snake.

Collaborating artist, Alexis Diaz writes:

“The image reflects on the different layers of sensuality. Eros is the greek god of love and desire, the word desire comes from the latin word ‘de sidus’ which means ‘of the star’. The intensity of how we look to a partner to complete us somehow. Perhaps sensual desires could be reflective of a deep yearning to return to the source. ” -Alexis Diaz
