Drawings from the past

Archaeologists who are now working at Pompeii, one of the most famous archeological parks in the world, continue to uncover extraordinary buildings, like the first incredibly emotional remains of the ancient city that were first discovered about 300 years ago. The latest finding is a newly unearthed house with brightly coloured animal graffiti. The residence, which probably belonged to a member of Pompeii's upper class, has been named the House of Dolphins as the marine mammals are painted on the walls and on the roof. The classical paintings in the house also include the images of some fish and several birds, which are as amazing as the dolphins. At the moment, archeologists are working in a rather elegant area of Pompeii, called Regio V, which is a northeastern street that had not been excavated since the immediate postwar period, with some parts completely untouched. The finding of the house was quite unintentional as the House of Dolphins was discovered no later than a week ago, a few days after the discovery of the most intact balconies of the richest buildings found in the area. These extraordinary discoveries, which continue to evoke great emotions, form part of the larger maintenance operation in one of the most at-risk areas of the site.

Girl with Red Balloon

Girl with Red Balloon is undoubtedly Banksy's ________ famous stencil and one of his most desirable artworks. The image is now appearing ________ on the Internet but also on postcards, glasses and bags. For all Banksy lovers, it's absolutely a must-have piece of art. Its ________ low edition size contributes to its desirability – there are few Girl With Balloon signed prints (no more than 150 copies) and 600 unsigned prints.
Girl With Balloon first appeared in 2002 on the side of a bridge on the South Bank in London. The ________ seemed to depict a little girl. She was ________ sad and she was watching her red heart-shaped balloon flying away. But on a closer examination, one understands that the young girl is releasing her balloon as she stands still and incredibly emotionless. The heart shape, which is the only spot of colour, stands for innocence, dreams, hopes and love. More ________ being just a child's toy, the balloon here ________ fragility. The image of the young girl letting go of her balloon suggests that innocence can easily be lost. Banksy is known to provoke society and he may imply through his ________ that society makes children grow old ________ and faster. The graffiti was originally accompanied by the sentence "There is always hope", a quite positive message, which suggests that no matter what happens there is always a hope ________ better days. Banksy painted a second version of the girl with a red balloon. This was a miniature version of his famous stencil onto the cardboard of a cheap frame and quickly became famous as it realized £73,250 at a sale at Bonhams in 2012.

Less than a month ago, I decided to join a group of street art lovers for the day organized by a company specialized in graffiti tours of highly notable ________ art in town.

Our tour guide, Leaf, started leading the group down streets with the ________ famous graffiti art installations and with the especially tagged-up buildings.

Our tour group stopped at ________ most amazing murals and tags, each of which Leaf patiently explained in detail. ________ them, the tallest artwork was a beautifully executed graffiti of a yellow creature on the side of a building, ________ painted by artists from Brazil. The illegal mural will be obscured in a ________ months, Leaf explained, as a luxury rental building will be built there ________ or later. Standing in front of a quite fading mosaic, Leaf described the way of life as a modern graffiti artist. Groups of graffiti artists who work together may be called 'crews' or 'gangs', but they are not actual gang members, Leaf said, in case there is any doubt.
