Here is former President Ronald Reagan on the shoulders of working Nicaraguan woman. This mural makes a strong statement about the domination of the U.S. under the Reagan administration and its relationship to Nicaraguas working people. The contrast between the powerful and the powerless is made clear through a comparison of their clothing and hands. What is he wearing and what is she wearing? Who has dirty hands and who is holding a gun? Who is smiling? Whose face is in the light and whose face is in the shadow? What is their relationship to the background?
