Historical-sculptural mural

With the complicity of history, drawn in the most iconic events of the land of Major General Vicente García, a 50-meter-long sculptural mural is inaugurated in the city of Las Tunas, like a watering hole where past and present are mixed, in line with the rebellion that has accompanied the retracement of our best lines.

The symbolism and courage contained in the main landmarks of local history, from the primitive community to the present, with the city's coat of arms as a witness, are also the product of the talent of the plastic artists Leandro Miguel Olano and Armando Rivero, who dedicated more than a year to modeling the works, in which the technique of sculpting in clay and casting in cement was used.
