Faded Fatherland. Illustration on argentine poet Jorge Luis Borges. Forever condemned both animal and human to witness in front of the government house, the horse decides to leave the scene so the rider falls. Dignity disappears. An ankle caught in the stirrup shows up the fatal fate: the national hero will be raptured by the force of the beast. "No one is the fatherland, not even the rider Who,high at the dawn of an empty square Rules his steed made of bronze through time Nor the other ones, looking away from marbles"
