It is the mixture of modern and taste, dream and poetry, creation of images of the city, the varying noisy and gaudy city, somehow it still welcomes ‘‘a sobbing heart and its silent guard’’.
The urban scenes are like the base of an icon character who bears the signal revealed the recession of his characteristic, however it still makes an effort. A heart, described as a ”new mascot for our modern life, in the heart of modern urban”, following Apollinaire, who wrote “Let’s legendize the mediocre present”
