This makes me think of the movie the Ruling Class again, toward the end. That is how Peter O'Toole dressed up when he went from Jesus to Jack. Would you like me to mail you that DVD if I can find it?

Vincent,
An interesting & rather gruesome silhouette of London's famous/ infamous Murder Jack the Ripper standing in his long coat & top hat over his latest victim knife in hand wile another sticks out of the victim's eye & the axe in her chest, Beautiful composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Are they any closer in discovering who exactly the Ripper was~ the then Prince of Wales or Who!!!
Either way I'm sure his Ghost still roams those streets on dark stormy nights.
Susan

    A fairly recent but very hot suspect, is actually an american called francis tumblety. anyone interested in the case, needs to seriously learn about him. he's one of three very strong candidates.

Great find of the famous Jack the Ripper. Such a shame you are losing the Victoriana but glad the artists still depict the era. A very interesting street art with menacing look.

Someone really did a superb job on this wall art mr Jones.

You captured it really nicely letting us see the graphic intentions of the one called Jack the Ripper.

Seeing something like this would have jarred me for sure.

Cool,Vincent!
It's an interesting and nicely 'out of the ordinary' type of a photographic capture,my friend! : )
I would imagine that 'Jack' ( whoever he might have been! ) is long dead and never coming back but it seems that aberrant ( and usually unknown ) murderers ( 'serial killers' as they're popularly known ) have haunted society since our kind 'came down from the trees'!

Excellent find and capture Vincenzo! I like finding wall art late at night with no people around taking selfies.
Great details and fine use of light.
It's for sure emotive and graphic at the scene of the crime.
Great silhouette work from the artist who painted it.
Fine capture ;)

Very cool capture MJ. I must say that there are certainly some very talented graffiti artists around.

I like the stark black and white colors in this as they add a great bit of drama to the scene.

The depiction of violence is a great reminder of Jack in the Victorian Era.

Good eye and skill in capturing this one MJ ~ Steve

Your presentation of the street art is perfect. This themed artwork is impressive. The painting, reminding of Victorian silhouette cuts, is telling the whole story of the murder without showing blood and guts. The garbage backs in the foreground seem to be part of the Ripper story. The mixed media is perfect compost and framed.
