Gigantic picture banner of Valeriia, one of the millions of Ukrainian children that have fled their country to escape the horror of war. The banner, made by French artist JR, has been unrolled in different cities of the world. Last April still on the Piazza San Marco in Venice before it found a place in the Ukrainian Pavilion of the Biennale.
Below is a picture of the banner as it was displayed in Lviv after the bombardment of the theatre in Mariupol. Valeriia as a free and cheerful Gulliver.
