Painting this 4-story image of a goldfinch was certainly worth it, if only for the photo of the artists riding it.  It was created in 2009, by German artists, Simon Jung and Paul & Hanno Schweizer, in a crime-ridden neighborhood of Naples. There is a great story posted of how access was gained and contact was made with locals in order to actualize this project. Read it here.
