In December, Italian street artist Raffo transformed a wall in a province of Naples into a mural of a screaming Edinson Cavani. Now Raffo has taken this motif a terrifying step further by creating a new mural of Cavani's Napoli teammate, Marek Hamsik, preparing to swallow a human baby.
Hamsik is depicted unhinging his jaw the way he does after scoring a goal (pictured below) and brandishing teeth like prison shanks with Mount Vesuvius erupting hearts behind him. The awesome yet nightmarish image is topped off with the words "Marek, Naples loves you." Perhaps not so coincidentally, this work was created the same day Hamsik's agent told a radio station that he doesn't think the midfielder will ever leave Napoli.
The streets of Naples will soon be completely covered with murals of irate footballers.
