Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

All over Mexico, in 3-dimensional statues and 2-dimensional murals, you find Miguel Hidalgo.  He was executed in 1811 at the beginning of Mexico's struggle for independence, but Father Hidalgo created the intellectual climate that sustained the rebellion and made him the father of the nation.  He is often seen holding a broken chain as a symbol of freedom.  [2007]
