To tell a story

a 50 meters long drawing in the facade apartment building , starting with mushrooms - as life starts with fungi - to Alice watching the caterpillar sitting on a mushroom smoking his pipe, the drawings blend into each other connected by meaning, by shape, place in history in parts of the city, you can find among them M.C. Escher, Fred Astaire, girlwithpearlearring, and blonde Dolly, who lived around the corner, in the shape of a night moth.

Ending with an owl on a branch referring to the other side of the building (Uilebomen) and the wisdom you supposed to have in the end.
