The art is shown to be a three-dimensional image that represented a real object. The texture and the color of the art suggest that the art can be confirmed from the object that it represents. The line and the shapes suggest that the art was a piece of a large object, only representing a portion. The art could have been prepared by the artist to be a record of the certain wall that was historic and needed to be preserved for history.
