Emiliano Zapata Inmortal
Painting - Digital Art/painting
I have endeavored to capture the timeless spirit of one of my Mexican folk heroes, Emiliano Zapata, who fought for the freedom and land ownership in behalf of the poor campesinos and Indians of his native Morelos state. He was assassinated in a deception and considered dead and gone forever by the unscrupulous powers-that-be at the time...no longer a 'trouble-maker.' However, his followers continued and continue to believe...that he lives on...if not in body, at least in spirit. He was more than a person...he was an ideal in the hearts and minds of many of his freedom loving devotees. Emiliano, in many respects, became immortal (or inmortal in Spanish).
