One peculiarity of Venezuelan cities, and especially of Caracas, that makes you feel happy, are multicoloured and optimistic in tropical style murals. They can be met in various places. Their heroes are most often legendary Libertador, his fellow fighter Francisco de Miranda, Indian chief Guaicaipuro or revolutionary singer poet Ali Primera.

At avenida Mexico big mural of artist Jan Pierce, follower of the famous Venezuelan master Gabriel Bracho, does not make you indifferent. Together with a team of assistants (that's how the great Mexican David Alfaro Siqueiros liked to create), Pierce made a large-scale in concept and implementation mural «Venezuela — eternal memory». Three-four dozen «thoughtful» steps along that mural let you pass a «brief course» of history of Venezuela in artistic images — starting from an Indian Guaicaipuro and through the oil boom up to the heroes of popular actions in February of 1989, when the first repulse was given to neo-liberal reforms that were initiated in the country by means of «shock» methods.

There is no portrait of president Hugo Chavez at this mural, but its all concept, image line, tensity of the past events, explain why it was Venezuela where there first appeared that bright revolutionary and reformer, who proclaimed Socialism of the XXI century as the only way out for salvation of humanity from imperialist anti-human totalitarianism.
