Looking Back

The Great City of Tenochtitlan by Diego Rivera, 1945, Mural from the National Palace, Mexico City.

Diego Rivera was an active and outspoken Communist who painted these murals (featuring the world of the Aztec people) after the Mexican Revolution as a way to give the Mexican people a sense of identity and pride in their history.

What an interesting image of history. I wish the jpeg image was larger so we could really see all the detail.
