The images show Lili Cantero totally engrossed in painting a sketch of Pele kissing a trophy while wearing a Brazilian jersey. The words “Pele” are also seen written on the ball with three hearts drawn beside it. The organisation, while replying to their own tweet, also shared a video showing the artist painting.
