"The White Leon" by Eduardo de la Cruz Guerra is a portrait made of oil on canvas. 

The same that the white lion is a unique member of it is species that prowls in western Africa, a species that its beauty is a rarity the same form of an African child with blue eyes. 

The theme of black and race has been explored in the Cuban plastic arts since the 1700s, and either way in terms of race, racism, and humanity, previously ignored throughout history, penetrate the global social and artistic discourse of the Cuban nation. Even thought, in this case, I do not propose the deconstruction of the current situation of the "races" in the island, and the politics which the unequal social and symbolic injustices have clashed. The vision of my work, is a demonstration, less symbolic and less representative of a self phenomenon of the gratitude to my work, it is the strength of expression of the Afro-Cuban culture, and giving the world of all it's history.
