Caption

This Mural painting is located at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. It portrays an American worker using a machine, symbol of humankind´s technology. Under him a hand holds a sphere which symbolizes the energy that we (humans) will someday control.

This painting was originally painted at the hall of the RCA building at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. Unfortunately the original painting was destroyed due to Rivera´s political opinions (portrayed in the mural) and his membership in the communist party. His work was repainted by request of the Mexican government to commemorate the inaguration of this building.

"El Hombre Contralor del Universo"

Este Mural se encuentra en el Palacio de Bellas Artes en la Alameda Central de la Ciudad de México. El centro de la composición retrata a un obrero utilizando una máquina, como símbolo del dominio de la tecnología. Al centro, una mano sostiene una esfera que simboliza la energía del átomo controlada.

Esta pintura debería estar en el vestíbulo del edificio de la RCA en la Plaza Rockefeller, en la Ciudad de Nueva York. Desafortunadamente, el mural original fue destruido debido a que representaba la posición política de Diego Rivera, miembro y presidente del partido comunista mexicano. El mural fue elaborado nuevamente a solicitude del gobierno mexicano para conmemorar la inaguración del Palacio de Bellas Artes.
