This mural condemns US intervention in Guatemala. In a photographic reproduction of the mural (in Juan Guzmán's private archive), the muralist writes a sarcastic message to its protagonist: the US Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, who was one of the main advocates of the international fight against communism. The message reads: <<to your excellency mr. foster dulles, a painting of your glorious victory, courtesy of time and life. <a href="/entity/m0q2c2" data-gacategory="annotation" data-gaaction="clicked" data-galabel="assetpage_injected_link_v1">Diego Rivera.>>
