Mr. Manuel Villamor

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a Belizean Icon. In the early morning hours today artist Mr. Manuel Villamor passed away in Chetumal Mexico where he had been living for many years. Mr. Villamor created the stunning Historical Mural in the Corozal Town Hall which began in 1953 and was revised in 1986 and again in 2003. Mr. Manuel completed his final restoration in 2012. He has left the public with this national treasure, as well as the medical mural at the Corozal Community Hospital, murals in St. Francis Xavier Church, the Catholic Church of San Joaquin Village and, of course, paintings all over the world. On behalf of the Corozal community and the National Institute of Culture and History we extend our most sincere condolences to the Villamor family during this time of sorrow.
