The painting was made on a nearly two-meter high wall that runs 30 meters long and the flags of the two countries were painted on each end of the mural. It also depicts a small forest, as a call for environmental protection, said local writer Luis Llamo, whose work served as an inspiration for the artists.

Painters with the national program for the recovery of empty spaces, Muraleando, worked on the mural along with students from Bayamo?s Oswaldo Guayasamin Arts Academy and children from a local primary school. Raices is part of a bigger project called Tiempos de Hoy, which, according to director Obdulia Brizo, will be taken to all 22 districts of Bayamo.

Tiempos de Hoy is a social and cultural community-based project that seeks to improve the quality of life through music, dance, theater and the arts.
