Mexican Revolution Movement with Emiliano Zapata

Location: Ensenada, Baja California

“Si No Hay Justicia para el Pueblo, que no haya paz para el Gobierno.” If there is no Justice for the People, then there won’t be peace for the Government”.

Is it a commercial propaganda, a tourist attraction or a symbol of an anonymous revolutionary movement? Maybe a little of each…

A Revolutionary movement can be something arising from a need and causing a dramatic change.  The sculptor's first piece happens to be the ultimate image of Mexican revolution: Emiliano Zapata.  
In front of Ensenada’s famous Hot Fox Night Club is a heart and across the street are 2 Zapatas staring at its direction. Are they staring at the heart of the problem within the city? What is the artist depicting with these statues?
