DescriptionBen Linder, an engineer from the United States who lived in Nicaragua during the revolution, is the subject of this mural. Linder was assisting with the construction of a small hydroelectric dam when he was killed by Contras. Linder is sitting on the left side of the mural looking at a house that has electricity. A rainbow arches over many beautiful trees and ends at Linder's grave, which is surrounded by blooming flowers. He was only 27 years old when he died; Linder was a national hero in Nicaragua for the work that he did and many people within Nicaragua and the United States mourned his passing.
