Fluctuat nec Mergitur


If you follow TBTP, you are probably aware of my admiration for street artist Seth Globepainter aka Jukien Malland. This week, following the horrific terror attacks in Paris, he left a simple, but moving message for the world. Using one of his wonderful child characters, he painted the longtime Paris city motto on a wall at Place Ménilmontant in Belleville. The very apt Latin phrase Fluctuat nec mergitur means “tossed but not sunk”.
