This image, photographed by the Global Street Art Foundation, depicts what appears to be a skeleton of a cat, split in half, revealing a piano within. The drab gray of the cat-piano contrasts the blue and pink hues in the background, making it stand out, even though it is muted.

These elements come together to create a strange but beautiful musical image that really stands amongst the bland urban medium on which it is painted.
