Falling Asleep Belgrade

Falling Asleep – By the post office

On a busy intersection next to the Dušanovac post office, behind a billboard on a peeling wall, there is a mural of a person sleeping, or in my opinion, falling asleep. 

It is pretty long so when people look at the wall, which they usually do not as it is falling apart, they usually just see a few shapes that they do not connect to see a person. The eye helps but you see it if you come closer or if you are looking for it. Maybe I like this mural so much because of the wall. They interact well. He seems calm when everything around him (the wall) is falling apart.

And it has a sun by its feet. To keep him warm. He is calm, while several bus lines roam next to him every few minutes and a hoard of older people go to the post office to pick up their pension check. 

Just one block away is his counterpart (check my article), on a yellow brick wall, smoking a cigarette.
