Long Description:
Though born in Argentina, Che Guevara was one of the key figures of the Cuban Revolution. He afterwards assisted revolutionary forces in the Congo and then in Bolivia where he was killed. Read more about him at (visit link)

This life-sized bust of Che Guevara depicts him wearing his beret with straggly hair, beard and mustache. He looks somewhat worried as he looks into the distance. The piece is painted gold...and it is difficult to determine what the piece is made from. It is set on a concrete v-shaped plinth about 5 feet high.
The plaque below the bust is in Spanish and reads:

"ERNESTO "CHE" GUEVARA

VISITO LAS RUINAS DE EL TAZUMAL, EN ABRIL DE 1954.

"SEAN CAPACES SIEMPRE DE SENTIR, EN LOS MAS HONDO,
