World's Most Controversial Monuments
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.
