CHILE: Streetart Angol – Arturo Prat 180 – (artworks no longer exist)

This mural has a syncretism of different cultures. For example, there are symbols of the Mapuche culture and probably also of the Mayan or Aztec culture (the snake and bird of the right corner). The snake isn’t a symbol of the local native people because there aren’t snake in Chile that can kill human beings, nor even a small animal like a cat.

This interesting mural by an unknown artist was on one of the many walls that fell with the earthquake of February 27th in 2010. It was at magnitude 8 on the Mercalli scale in Angol.

Today in this place there is a new wall on which you can see the great mural made by PRI about “Food Sovereignty“, where it can be seen that the new wall is on top of a thicker and older wall, which actually is this mural. I am sure that my thesis (“in small cities in Chile there is no competition to find a wall to make graffiti, so that graffiti can remain unperturbed for more than a decade”) would be fulfilled in this case if the wall had not fallen.
