Title[Picking Coffee]
DescriptionHenry Houser notes that there "... are three women sitting down picking coffee, which is growing in some profusion. They don't have to reach for the coffee, it is within easy arm's length. The women are dark skinned and they are putting the coffee beans into ceramic dishes. There is no symbol here of revolution or of the FSLN or Nicaragua. It suggests a plentiful and productive nature." This mural is on a tall building across street from the central plaza, in front of the Palacio Nacional (National Palace) and Nicaraguan Cathedral in Managua, Nicaragua.
