A monument highlights environmental issues, but has limitations

Nita Qena handpainted the entire monument herself last February and has been involved in the Newborn sign’s evolution since Ismaili, her husband, revealed it when Kosovo gained independence on February 17, 2008. She hoped to use environmentally-friendly paint to fit the theme, but Qena had to use oil-based paint in order for the design to handle all kinds of weather until the monument is repainted next February.

We are located in the media complex in the center of the capital city of Prishtina. What once used to house the first Albanian newspaper Rilindja, now is the Governmental building and we are right close to it.
