The Mexican Revolution of 1910
This is a mural that I did for a friend of mine in Colima Mexico on the school where he teaches. It goes through the history of the Mexican revolution starting with the American funded political take over by Porfirio Diaz(left) and the uprising of the agrarian work force via the Zapatistas and the division del norte(middle). Finally ending on the right with arguably the greatest president in Mexican history, Lazaro Cardenas. Cardenas nationalized Mexico's oil, returned %50 of farm land to indigenous peoples, and many other things. It was a challenge, but extremely satisfying and educational.
