Banco de Guatemala

This photo emphasize the abstract mural created by Roberto González Goyri, in the period of 1964-1965. This mural was made of concrete with a height of 40 m, divided into three segments, each of 7.21 m of width. It is impressive the evolving character of the abstract elements of the composition, reminiscent of Mayan art, with the changing and fluid condition of light through the day.
