Turn your traditional scarf of snuff and states that never saw him since that year to specify location at a charge of one of their typicality. And as the lost children, lives waiting for the reunion, listening here and there to be aware of one of his lesser known works.

Tricky in the side garden of the Diocese of Matanzas town lies a Worker Christ , treated as evidence of a “miraculous” event and the new artistic language that brought the air of the Cuban Revolution, a Jesus desired sweat and similar wood to the face Camilo Cienfuegos.
