This painting offers a view of El Valle de Los Ingenios, also known as the Valley of the Sugar Mills. This location was the center of the world’s sugar production from the late 18th century to the late 19th century. At the peak of the industry, there were over fifty sugar cane mills in operation with over 30,000 Africans, who were kidnapped into slavery, working in the mills as well as the plantations which surrounded them. The tremendous injustice of the Spanish landowners forcing the Africans to toil the land, caused Michelle to name this piece Life and Death. The abolition of slavery by the Spanish in 1820 rendered the economic dominance of the area in ruins by the turn of the twentieth century.

This is a 1/1 NFT of the original 20" x 24" inch oil painting.

Esta pintura ofrece una vista de El Valle de Los Ingenios, también conocido como el Valle de los Ingenios. Este lugar fue el centro de la producción mundial de azúcar desde finales del siglo XVIII hasta finales del siglo XIX. En el apogeo de la industria, había más de cincuenta ingenios de caña de azúcar en funcionamiento con más de 30.000 africanos, que fueron secuestrados y convertidos en esclavos, trabajando en los ingenios y en las plantaciones que los rodeaban. La tremenda injusticia de los terratenientes españoles obligando a los africanos a trabajar la tierra, hizo que Michelle pusiera a esta pieza el nombre La Vida y la muerte. La abolición de la esclavitud por parte de los españoles en 1820 dejó en ruinas el dominio económico de la zona a principios del siglo XX.

Michelle Trunzo (1933-2016) collection image

Michelle's paintings are currently being shown at the Millennium Gate Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. Michelle's exhibition debuted on the 26th of June 2021 and will continue for the following months.

On the same day that Michelle's artworks debuted, the Cuban community of Atlanta came together at the Millennium Gate Museum to celebrate liberty for Cuba. This day was officially declared José Martí Day by the governor of Georgia. During this event, a statue of José Martí was revealed by the Martí Historical Society, Inc. with well-known guests Andy García and Enrique Chia. We hope this statue serves as a symbol representing hope for a free Cuba, and not just Cuba, but in all places... As if a signal fire from God declared to us what was to come for Cuba on July 11th, 2021.

Michelle's art reminds us of the light of this world. Taking us through the sacred hallway to the sea that sets us free. Michelle's art now walks the seas of OpenSea with NFTs of her oil paintings.
