19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile

In Italy a funeral poster is shown in public places and close to the deceased home to tell the community and call friends and relatives to the religious masses, called up after the funeral at given time interval, a commemorative event. This young girl is trying to remove the funeral poster from their home wall, using a knife and water to clean up. I cannot imagine the pain and thoughts going on there, I thought though this image is a paradigm of the times we are leaving in... The funeral poster is for her mother.
