Completed in 1983, The Supreme Dream of Bolívar was located on la avenida Bolívar, Managua. Unfortunately, the majority of this mural was destroyed on October 25, 1990, after the Sandinistas lost the elections, and the rest of the mural was destroyed in 1991. Both artists of this mural, Víctor Canifrú and Alejandra Acuña Moya, were Chilean exiles. The mural was painted 200 years after the death of Simón Bolívar, who was a symbol of independence for many Latin American countries. There are many segments of the mural, and there are not many photographs of the mural, especially of the entire mural. One segment of the mural depicts the United States as a grim reaper, as the U.S., Spain, and Christianity were used as tools of cultural oppression in Latin American countries such as Nicaragua.
