Photo: Theme Day: "Worker" -- Jose Orozco
You might be asking yourself how this ties in with the theme of "worker." Along with Diego Rivera, Orozco was one of the great Mexican muralist painters, and one of their recurrent themes was the life of Mexican workers and peasants.
I remember being quite surprised by the murals of Rivera in the Mexican Parliament building. They promote the role of workers and contain scenes highly critical of government and the church. They are far more political and ideological than would ever be allowed in the U.S. Capitol.
This week we are showing photos of a festival in Punahka, Bhutan, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
