The mount of flags

In 2006 Fidel Castro ordered the construction of “The Mount of Flags” in El Malecón de La Havana in front of the US Interests Section. Several very tall flag poles with 138 huge black flags, each center with a star, one for each year since the proclamation of independence. The purpose was to block the visibility of the US Interests Section billboard and its electronic anti Castro message and memorialize Cuban victims of terrorism. I print this artwork on cotton paper and aluminium.
