Zapata, was a gift from Mexico City to the City of Los Angeles in 1980. It stands at El Parque de Mexico. You'll find several sculptures of Mexican heroes there, though we noted some busts were missing and I'm not sure why.
Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon was donated to the City of Los Angeles by Mexican President Jose Lopez Portillo in 1981. (Sorry, there should be accents on Portillo's names but they freak Blogger out when I use them, which makes no sense to me because don't people all over the world use Blogger?)
My photo doesn't do justice to the statue (or to Manny, for that matter). The statue is detailed, powerful, impressive. You've got to see it in person.
Caballo Diablo, perhaps. This exuberant work prances at the Brewery Arts Complex in Lincoln Heights.
Tomorrow, more art.
