Morphing backwards

In Cairo, the generals tried to prevent protests in Tahrir Square & blockaded the area with cement blocks to make it inaccessible. Artists/activists have made the barriers a focus of political protest by turning the cement blocks, surrounding walls, & fences into a marvel of political murals. Here, they depict the morphing faces of ousted dictator Mubarak, present military ruler Hussein Tantawi, & presidential candidates Amr Mussa & Ahmed Shafiq (who are both part of the Mubarak military regime). If you look close enough, you'll see some US faces too!?  (Photo by Marco Longari/AFP)
