Revolutionary Sculpture, Camagüey, Cuba 2013 (by José Villa Soberón)

The large 11 meter sculpture, is dedicated to a Cuban Revolutionary Camilo Cienfuegos,

By Cuban sculptor, José Villa Soberón, and unveiled in Oct 2013 possibly to celebrate 50th anniversary of Cienfuegos death (4 years late...?).

Camilo Cienfuegos (1932-1959) disappeared on a flight to Havana, and his airplane was never found. Camilo, Che and Fidel are on most revolutionary artwork, all three forever young!

Cienfuegos death remains a mystery! Popular legend says Fidel sent him to be killed to avoid being overshadowed. (Filippo)

I took this photo upon entering the city from a moving car (Peugeot 1978), so the quality is pretty poor.

As far as the figure on the ladder is concerned....I do not know, if it is a sculpture or a worker. In Cuba, sometimes the workers appear sculpture-like! They do not move too fast... ;-) !

Interesting cienfuegos/fidel-castro story, if you want to read about it.
