Plaza de la Revolución

Plaza de la Revolución
The monument is dedicated to the 19th century war hero General Antonio Maceo. There is a large sculpture of the man on horseback with symbolic machetes rising up from the grass below him. The sculpture was created by a local Santiago de Cuba artist, Alberto Lezcay, and erected in the 1990s.

General Antonio Maceo Grajales was second-in-command of the Cuban army of independence. Commonly known as "the Titan of Bronze," Maceo was one of the outstanding guerrilla leaders in nineteenth century Latin America. The son of a Venezuelan mulatto and Afro-Cuban woman, Maceo began his fight for Cuban liberation by enlisting as a private in the army in 1868 when the Ten Years War began. Five years later, he was promoted to the rank of general because of his bravery and his demonstrated ability to outmaneuver the Spanish army.

Ist ja nicht nur das s/w, was hier so hittig ist, sondern vor allem das Format.
Das muss beeindruckend sein, davor zu stehen....

es gibt 3 große "Plazas de la Revolucion", in La Habana, in Santa Clara und in Santiago, wobei mich dieser hier am meisten beeindruckte, vielleicht auch, weil ich den "schwarzen süden" so mag.
