Beautiful Belize Historical mural in the Corozal Town Council
Most of the pictures in the mural depict historical settings in the North but some are general, like George Price.
The painting was done by Manuel Villamor Reyes who is a Belizean living in Mexico.
This mural reflects the history of Northern Belize. For the Yucatec Maya of Belize also known as "Maya ,Masewal,Maya Mestizo,Maya Masewal or Mayero" this mural is very important because it shows part of our struggle and resistance. From our ancestors like Nachan Can to the struggle of our grand parents during the Caste War. To the change of Maya rebels becoming Cane farmers after the war. Today the Maya of Northern Belize want to say thank you Nojoch Mak Manuel Villamor, your art will be in our hearts and live for our future generation to see. Yuum bo'otik
