Beautiful Motherhood Mural Carved Out in Layers

Street artist Vhils has one of the most amazing styles I've ever seen. Chipping away at walls with a power drill, the Portuguese artist tore up three separate layers of a building to create one magnificent piece, which looks like a mother holding her (unseen) infant child. It was created on São Miguel island in Azores, Portugal as part of the Walk & Talk Festival, where a total of 30 artists showed off their works.
