French Artist MTO paints a new Street Art mural entitled "Hope" in New Orleans, Louisiana. 1

MTO is still busy on the streets of New Orleans in Louisiana where he recently finished working on this new mural which is entitled “Hope”.
Located on the corner of 7th street and South Saratoga, the French street artist quickly painted this signature hyper-realistic piece. Originally, the crossed fingers represented the cross on which Jesus was crucified, and so the cross, like the crossed fingers, represents a sign of hope (and hence good luck), unless you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
Take a look at more images after the break and then drop your two cents down in the comments section.
