Painted Donkeys at Ta' Pinu in Gozo

The article below was taken from The Times of Malta today.

The island of Gozo has 21 more donkeys on it: Mediterranean Peace Donkeys.

''The Mediterranean Peace Donkeys project is a peacebuilding exhibition of 21 life-sized fiberglass ‘Maltese’ donkeys painted by Gozitan, Maltese, Egyptian and Western artists symbolising the need for peace and compassion between the Middle East and West, and more specifically throughout the Mediterranean basin (a donkey for each of the 21 Mediterranean nations).
This exhibition, organised by Caravan arts NGO, takes place when there has never been a more important time for the peoples of the Mediterranean countries to unite and stand together for peace in the region and globally.
This unique art exhibition is a crucial example that people everywhere can participate and work together towards harmony, understanding and peace, with the island of Gozo, both historically and contemporarily, representing an intercultural bridge between the East and West.
The exhibition runs at Ta’ Pinu National Shrine until February 28.''

I've published this comment anyway as everyone is entitled to an opinion - as negative as it is.
