This is all that is left of a Mural that once covered the front and side indent of a building at 835 Corydon Avenue.
It is occupied by Advanced Body Sugaring, a business that removes body hair with sugar. They have retained only the side indent painting.

With sugar..? 😉
A really beautiful painting, very well captured… 🙂
Oh yes, with sugar! It is an ancient technique for body hair removal. I read in Egypt they used honey. Honey is still part of many sugaring pastes. 🙂
Canada has such cool city art. The last time I traveled there I wandered the streets of Toronto searching and found myself pleasantly surprised to see so many urban artist.
I find though it is a comfort that my local police keep the streets clean it is a disappointment to my visual eyes. Plain shades of beige paint on most exterior walls becomes a coffin after a while.
Toronto is filed with fabulous urban art! I enjoy, immensely, wandering the streets, taking pictures.
I think I would go crazy wandering beige streets.
It’s toxic. Trust me
This is such a ‘sweet’ artwork, Resa… 😉
Many years ago a young lass from Lebanon removed some hair from my arm with a sugar and lemon concoction. She melted the sugar, added the lemon and worked it until it became gooey and sticky. I had to stop her; she wanted to do my entire body… eek.. 😉
EEEEK! 🙂 Well, let’s think other hair removal experts in the sugar category (or others) are more personally discerning.
If anyone tried to touch my head hair … well … I love my long hair and like YELPO… Love you darling ahhh xoxoxoxoxo 🙂
