Don Quixote Statue and Eva Perón Mural, Buenos Aires

Love her or hate her, Eva (Evita) Perón now has her own big attention-grabbing mural that literally overshadows a statue of iconic literary figure Don Quixote. While Evita was a champion of charities and the women’s suffrage movement in Argentina, she was also criticized for being corrupt and calculated. Unveiled in July 2011, Daniel Santoro’s mural of this controversial figure in Argentine history has received similarly mixed reviews.
