La Palma Real

The royal palm tree is patriotic Cuban emblem and in this piece we can appreciate a national feeling because the identity not only is defined by the historic event but the cultural imaginary too. The representation of palm tree -a strong presence in Cuban countrysides- is combined with the Jose Martí’s poems: “Yo soy un hombre sincero de donde crece la palma…” and this expresses patriotism as a dimension of we were and we wish being.
