Namesake of the Zapatistas, Emiliano was a hero of the Mexican Revolution who fought hard for land rights for indigenous people. He was eventually betrayed and killed of course. I bought this picture in Todos Santos, Baja California. Packed it into a box, loaded it onto the top of my friend’s Baja bug, heard it slide off the roof as we reached highway speeds, and turned around to see it bouncing down the road. Somehow it survived! I’ve lost my tape measure but I’d say it’s about 12″ x 18″.
