It took the Argentine artist three weeks to complete though she wasn’t painting every day. Irene told BA Street Art that the theme is all about integration. “The wall is in front of a school so the subject is gentle,” she says, choosing to paint a goat rather than a lamb. “The mural doesn’t have too much to do with nature. Integration seems to be something we are opposed to in society. We are taught (at school) about the traditional stereotypes of the wolf and the lamb.  The two animals are opposed to each another, representing the good and the bad however the power is within us to integrate these two opposing forces to be dynamic together.”
