A black logo of a turtle wiwth the number "92" at the bottom of his shells above the tail is printed at the bottom right corner of the image.

Poster has two black and white snakes at the top moving from left to right, one with the words "Third Chasky" on his back and the other with the words "Auto Descubrimiento" on his back. Below the snakes is a large shape of a butterfly with a body of yellow and black bulbs. The wings of the butterfly form an abstract map of the world and are divided into four red sections, the top two containing a pair of sad eyes, presumably representing North America and Europe/Asia, and the bottom two with a collage of black and red images of people. The left wing is the shape of South America and the right wing the shape of Africa. Below the butterfly between the bottom extension of its wings is a quote by Popol Vuh in Spanish. Centered beneath the butterfly is a black eagle with wings outspread - in the wings is the text "500 Anos De Resistencia". Behind the butterfly, quote and eagle is a blue background that transitions to purple at the bottom. In the white space beneath the image is black text with the date, time, and location of the event followed by descriptive text reading "the Chasky (messenger) is a call to rescue our historic memory. inspired by the spirit in honor of Mother Earth & 500 years of resistance by Native American, Afro-Americans & all pueblos..." followed by a number for more information. At the bottom left corner of the poster is a black and white image of an eye where the iris is a globe turned to North and South America with a North American Indian shouting at the left and a ship with sails to the right. At the bottom right corner is an abstract image holding a torch with an oval snaking around him containing the words "Second Continental Shasky of Auto Descubrimiento". |
