In its obverse it is a picture of the town during the XIX century, in its reverse the shield of the city and in its bottom the name of the entertained.

“It is one of the most interesting recognitions that have granted me”, the painter expressed when receiving it; “it contains the essence of what is to feel people of Matanzas city, is an identity.”

The creator is in the realization of works of diverse formats for the next exhibition whose name is still to define, and where the frottipia, the interpretation of the Afro-Cuban religion and the singular employment of the colors will be present; making singular once again inside the contemporary art.
