Day 22. The kiss that said it all

Originally from a photo taken in October 1979, of Brezner and Honecker greeting each other at a meeting of socialist states to celebrate 30 years of the GDR in East Berlin. 

This painting was painted on the Eastern side of the Berlin Wall in 1990 then recreated in 2009 for the East Side Gallery.

“In this painting, there’s one German and one Russian, and the Berlin Wall is about the same thing but in reverse: here  there’s total love, while the Berlin Wall separates two worlds — it was a perfect fit.”   – Vrubel, the artist , explains how both the location and the characters give meaning to the painting. 

I took this photo of the artwork in 2018. My take on today’s prompt.

This is is a response to a Flash Fiction prompt from ‘Putting My Feet In the Dirt’, July Writing Prompts hosted by ‘M’
