The guide (right) for that trip described the mural to Nicole Hartwig (left) and Grazyna Szawlowski (center). The mural described León over time, with Chief Adiact to the left, all the way to computers at the far right (beyond this photograph).

A dramatic sun was shining over a boy flying a kite. The string of the kite were words describing the theme of the mural.
