Skylines for the Lebanese

Artwork based on illustrations from The Guardian

There's Lebanese in Dubai, there's Lebanese in London, there's Lebanese in Paris, there's Lebanese in Sydney, there's Lebanese in Beirut.... In the same respective order the skylines were placed above. A friend told me to make the Beirut skyline more visible, but try as I might to find a decent coherent image of the Beirut skyline, there is none. Why? Simply, we have no landmarks, no icons, no special features worth displaying apart from arrogance... and violence. Only the Lebanese in Lebanon are violent, they seem to become more meek outside... In Dubai, London, Paris or Sydney - but they do keep the arrogance as well even if thankfully not the violence.
