This mural represents three epochs; the pre-Hispanic era is expressed in the left wall, reflecting the customs and the type of life of the Mixtecs, Zapotecs and Mexicas; on the right wall passages from the time of the Conquest; finally, in the central wall, the independent period. In the latter, José María Morelos y Pavón is represented with the printing press and making the first newspaper in Oaxaca called “El Correo del Sur”.
