The Mural Complete- Berlin

Sunday morning, I walked from the train to the Schoenefeld Airport and noticed the scaffolding was down and the painting of the mural complete.

I saw the artist’s name, Steven Karlstedt. You might remember the photo of the painting of the mural when I arrived a couple of weeks ago.
