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?
