The Ghetto Pieta

Jim, a Gentleman of Elegant Leisure (says so on his business card) at Sweet Juniper blog, was walking in Mount Oliver, Pittsburgh, when he ran across a street art that put all street arts to shame: an anonymous painting of the Ghetto Pietà.

The Ghetto Pietà, drawn "in loving memory of a brother named Brice," is a mural painted on a few plywood boards replacing the window of a vacant storefront. Various scenes are depicted, including the grieving mother and (presumably) the son of Brice reaching in vain towards the dead man, and the chain of violent events that preceeded the death, including a drive-by attack and the police response.
