Museum Description



In this work, the guajiro strikes an aggressive pose and struggles with weapons in each hand while the waters rise near his waistline. Encircled by a full-body halo or mandorla of azure blue water, the Realist becomes an ersatz island, symbolic of Luna’s homeland. The figure expresses anguish and distress, his bright red tongue ablaze with the same red that drips or rather “flowers” from his knives or the red field in the Cuban flag that has become the pocket of his jacket. The Realist has been forced to accept his fate as slave to the realities of geography and politics.
