Only Revolution

The political heart of Buenos Aires, the “Plaza de Mayo,” is the symbol of Argentina’s stormy political history. It was bombed to remove Juan Peron from power, filled with workers, militants, right and left-wing fanatics, mothers searching for their children, repression, renunciations, promises, and tears. “Che” Guevara, depicted as a Sphinx, is the guardian not only of the Holy but also responsible for selecting who is honest enough to enter the temple. Guevara challenges visitors with riddles, eating those who fail to solve them. On the other side of the artwork, Juan Domingo Peron greets the people who loved him. He is riding a “Siambretta,” a scooter produced in Argentina under his direction, providing workers with an affordable and reliable mode of transportation.
