After independence, the Mozambican authorities commissioned the production of mural art on specially chosen sites. The murals, made both by Mozambicans and Chilean exiles, represented a special kind of enthusiasm. The artists focused on several themes from Mozambique’s past, present and future, such as the colonial wars, agricultural and economic cooperation, and the war against corruption. The book was issued to celebrate the fourth congress of FRELIMO, which was also presenting its five year plan.
