The “murderer” is dead, the “savage” is out, the Confederacy is dead and the “beautiful” is gone.
But the mural on the Capitol grounds is one of the most recognizable pieces of Confederate history.
It is the work of artist Jose Marquez, whose “mortal” was the famed Spanish artist Diego Rivera, and who painted a mural of a soldier kneeling in a Confederate battle flag.
The artwork on the south side of the Capitol is also one of many that depict Confederate figures, including a Confederate soldier and an African-American woman holding a Confederate flag.
Marquez, 59, a Mexican-American, is a founding member of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, where he created murals depicting Confederate figures for the gallery.
He painted more than 1,000 murals in the United States, Mexico and Canada, according to a biography posted on the museum’s website.
He said in an interview with NBC News that the mural was designed to show the United Nations in the South, and that it was meant to show a soldier from the Confederacy kneeling in front of the U.S. Capitol.
Maravilla’s mural shows a woman in a long gown holding a rifle and kneeling before the U;s Confederate flag, which is on a white background with a black star in the center.
Marvilla, who also painted portraits of Confederate figures such as General Robert E. Lee, said the painting was meant as a statement.
The painting shows a soldier standing in front and with his arms crossed in front, wearing a cap, with a pistol in one hand and a Confederate banner in the other, and kneeling with his hands over his head.
It was designed by a man named Jose Maravilla, a Spanish-American artist, the museum said in a statement to NBC News.
Marovilla’s work has been viewed by millions of people around the world, including at the White House, where President Donald Trump, a Republican, commissioned it.
Marivilla’s works were first installed in 2006 and 2009.
In an interview, Maraville said he chose to make the work for the Uptown Gallery of Art because he wanted to pay homage to the South.
The South had a history of racism and segregation, Marivilla said.
It had a very racist society, he said.
The museum said the artwork will be permanently removed from the grounds of the South Capitol complex.
A spokeswoman for the museum did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News about whether the museum had any plans to remove the mural.
