This amazing piece by Cesar Mejia, presents a figurative representation of the city of Cuenca, Ecuador. The strong Roman Catholic culture of the city is represented by the prominent crosses, embedded into the home exteriors. The abundance of apple production is presented by the exaggerated apples. Further, the man standing on the apple which hangs by a thread, serves to represent the town's uneasy reliance on apple exports to propel its economy. Cesar's study under the late Gonzalo Endara Crow, one of Ecuador’s most renowned artists, can be seen in the style of this work.
