Originally in the Hotel del Prado on Alameda Park, moved to the Museo Mural Diego Rivera. The hotel was demolished after the 1985 earthquake, but the precious mural was saved and transferred to its new location in 1986. The huge picture, 15m (49 ft.) long and 4m (13 ft.) high, chronicles the history of the park from the time of Cortez onward. Portrayed in the mural are numerous historical figures. More or less from left to right, but not in chronological order, they include: Cortez; a heretic suffering under the Spanish Inquisition; Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, a brilliant, progressive woman who became a nun to continue her scholarly pursuits; Benito Juarez, seen putting forth the laws of Mexico's great Reforma; the conservative Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, handing the keys to Mexico to the invading American Gen. Winfield Scott; Emperor Maximilian and Empress Carlota; Jose Marti, the Cuban revolutionary; Death, with the plumed serpent (Quetzalcoatl) entwined about his neck; Gen. Porfirio Diaz, great with age and medals, asleep; a police officer keeping La Alameda free of 'riffraff' by ordering a poor family out of the elitists' park; and Francisco Madero, the martyred democratic president who caused the downfall of Diaz, and whose betrayal and alleged murder by Gen. Victoriano Huerta (pictured on the right) resulted in years of civil turmoil.
