in detail

The mural by the painter and architect, Juan O'Gorman, has a history even before the ideas it embodies, it was made of white marble and colored stones that the artist collected nationwide. The project lasted a year with virtually no budget and a working day of over 12 hours.

It is noteworthy that the library that O'Gorman painted is, along with other buildings in the Ciudad Universitaria, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.

The four sides of the upper block form an integral work of four thousand square meters, where various aspects of Mexican history are represented. In the mural, the sun and the moon act as vigilantes and between them history and the characters who fight for truth, especially in the pre-Hispanic culture, develop.

The mural looks at the dialectic of ideas, including criticism of history and diverse ideologies.
